Rebel SDF legislator Prem Singh Golay has taken a final decision for launching his political party on February 4. The party was supposed to be floated this month but the date was postponed due to bereavement in his family.
According to close aides, the best astrological date for the new party under Golay’s leadership falls on February 4.
The party was supposed to be launched last October but the announcement date was kept postponing due to several reasons.
With supporters disheartened by the repeated deferment, Golay is said to have taken a final decision to launch the new party on February 4, it was informed. The party would be announced at his residence in Singling, Soreng-Chakung constituency in West Sikkim.
The party’s flag and central executive committee members would also be revealed on the same day. The names of those persons to be included in the central executive committee have not been disclosed at the moment.
The constitution and programmes of the new party has been prepared and sent for printing, it was informed. It is learnt that a ‘strong step’ against the repeal of Registration of Companies (Sikkim) Act 1961 would be announced on the day when Golay launches his new party.
Sources further maintain that the branches of Golay’s new party were supposed to be established in all the 31 territorial constituencies on the same day of party launching.
However, with many supporters from different areas being interested in attending the party announcement function at Singling, the move has been withheld for two days.
The new party’s offices in each constituency would be set up only after two days of the party’s launch. Golay camp also claims that some SDF workers are also maintaining contact for joining the new party.
As the D-Day approaches, Golay supporters are energized and working on public contact activities in different parts of the State. His frontal organizations, Swatranta Sharmik Sangathan Sikkim and Swantranta Nari Sangathan are also campaigning for a ‘change’ in Sikkim.
Meanwhile, opposition parties would be organizing a public meeting on February 10 under the banner of Democratic Alliance of Sikkim. It is not decided whether the new party under Golay’s leadership would be joining the meeting.
