    This is a very strong message by the Government of Sikkim for the well being of its people. Hon’ble CM has never made indiferrences amongst people irrespective of their Caste, Creed, Sex and Origin and I really respect him for the noble ges…ture. In regard to the Bandh called after almost years is just to give better opportunities to the people of Sikkim and its does not really have a political turns. Sikkim is now the hub to many of the industries and other resources which inturn has many avenues to sustain the gallowping Unemployment rates in the state. Also now Sikkimese people are well upto standards to hold the Managerial Post in this industries rather that a mere wage labourers and if these establishment are not taking these rates of growing manpower with resources full brains than someone has to step up and in this case Our Government has taken a right steps to meet the common men needs. In my view this Bandh has nothing to do with any politics rather speak and stands for the Best Brains of Sikkim. Love Live Chamlings Leadership.
