Area MLA, Burtuk constituency Mr. Prem Sing Tamang (Golay) has submitted his resignation from the post of Chairman, Commerce and Industries Department, to the Chief Secretary, Government of Sikkim Mr. TT Dorjee, on 22nd March.
Considering the submission of resignation a press conference was held on 22nd March here in the capital, where Mr. Bhojraj Rai, former MLA and the supporter of Mr. Tamang informed that Mr. PS Tamang have submitted his resignation letter to the Chief Secretary Mr. TT Dorjee on the moral ground.
Mr. Rai stated that Mr.Tamang in his resignation letter have mentioned that public life in state is not safe where goons attack public life in presence of a public representative who is also a Minister, RB Subba. Personal properties of citizen are also in threat as numbers of vehicles are torched, houses are attacked and such activates are increasing alarmingly since last one year across the state, but justices in such cases are reported to be grey and democratic rights of the citizen are also curtailed to a large extent.
If Chief Minister Pawan Chamling holds power to suspend Mr. Tamang from the post of MLA and the party membership and when Sikkim Democratic Front Party can take action against Mr.Tamang on the grounds of discipline and principles of the party, they (Mr Tamang and Bhoj Raj Rai) are ready to contest the election if SDF proposes to dissolve the government and held fresh election, Mr. Rai challenged.
Mr. Rai further demanded strict action against Minister RB Subba if SDF party truly believes in its principles and added that they will continue their movement and put pressure on the government until justice is met. SDF party always claims Sikkim to be a peaceful state but people are not secure and Mr. Rai further demanded that police should arrest those involved in Singling incident and take strict action.
SDF party spokesperson Mr. Bhim Dahal when contacted on the matter said that the official statement of the party will only be given after going through the comments of Mr Tamang and Mr Rai in the news papers.
