Gangtok, Aug 4
Sikkim Democratic Front party expressed that Sikkim Krantikari Morcha party has cheated the people of Sikkim with misinformation and just trying to blame the earlier government in the first budget session of SKM government.
The opposition SDF party asserted that the Budget Session should be for sustainable development of Sikkim and for the basic needs of the people and for economic, social and educational development but the ruling government had worked exactly opposite to it with a pre-planned conspiracy of pointing out achievements and development achieved by the people of Sikkim in the SDF government.
A SDF press release issued by its spokesperson, JB Darnal mentioned that RMDD Minister Sonam Lama said on the fourth day of the assembly session that the then Chief Minister and leader of the House, Pawan Chamling alleged him anti-national on raising the voice of the people in the earlier government. On the same, the release stated that he would just not become the anti-national if any person or elected representative alleged him the anti-national but the work and speech makes him the anti-national. The release questioned that if he had not done anything anti-national and unconstitutional then why suddenly he informed the house about it.
SDF further questioned that whey Sonam Lama had not approach the court on such serious allegation by the leader of the house of the earlier government. The release further questioned that why he had not inform the Union Home Ministry about the issue to get the justice. The opposition party asserted that raising of this issue by Sonam Lama suddenly now in the assembly has been creating doubt. It is further alleged that the act has exposed the double standard of Sangha MLA Sonam Lama.
The release stated that SKM has been trying to mislead the people by raising the issue of corruption by alleged the earlier government for the corruption in the five-day long assembly session.
The release stated that RMDD Minister also mentioned that awards conferred by the Centre to the earlier government on the success of the rural water distributions has now been obstructing the State government to work efficiently. On the same, the release questioned that whether he was against the success of the earlier government in the rural water distribution or have objection on the recognition given the Centre to the State. It is stated that the Minister has been getting confused. SDF party questioned that who was holding back the State government hands to give continuation to the successful rural water distribution plan of the earlier government. On the same, SDF party suggested Sonam Lama not to place irresponsible and conspiring facts again in the assembly being the Sangha MLA and a Minister of the State government.
