People aspersing Sikkimese Nepali as foreigner rather curse their own ancestors: KN Sharma
Gangtok, June 27, 2013
Bharatiya Gorkha Parishangh (BGP) , Sikkim strongly condemning the aspersion against Sikkimese Nepali by anti social elements within so-called Old Settlers of Sikkim put forth a strong objection to their remark as absolutely anti social gesture. This so-called old settlers, as the BGP Sikkim president K N Sharma stated that they on the advice of the then Indian political officer in Sikkim refuse to accept Sikkim Subject ship in 1961 denying their allegiance and faith to the then Choygal and the Kingdom of Sikkim. With the pride of being an Indian, they thought Sikkim Subject of no value then, a press release stated.
Now the Central Income Tax (IT) exemption to the native Sikkimese Nepali has become a cause for their heart burn which is very much pitiable. For the anguish of their own past mistake they should not subject native Sikkimese Nepali as foreigner to heal their heart for petty gain like IT exemption.
The IT exemption by Government is constitutionally guaranteed to the native Sikkimese under the preview of the provisions granted under article 371 (F) which excludes these so called Old settlers who calms themselves the Indians. Hence the exemption doesn’t include them as they are not native Sikkimese as per the constitution .
And asking IT exemption for themselves labeling Sikkimese Nepali as foreigner is a logic totally absurd and highly objectionable. President Sharma suggests that these anti social elements to restrain themselves from sawing seed of communal hatred for their own safety.
And apologizing for their mistake will help them correct and carve out a secure place for themselves in Sikkimese society for a peaceful co-existence. President Sharma also has offered them with options and suggested them to make their own choice as to what may be better for their own selves .
BGP Sikkim has observed that the perjury that they have laid before the honorable Supreme Court has the effect that it may misled the highest court of the land.
BGP Sikkim has also been authorized by the central committee of the BGP to take all steps to resolve this issue and to clear all erroneous misconceptions about the national status of Gorkhas of Sikkim.
