Gangtok, Aug 12
Sikkim Democratic Front party asserted that to term the day of the release of PS Golay on 10 August 2018 after the one year of imprisonment for conviction in a corruption case by Sikkim Krantikari Morcha party as Jan Unmukti Diwas is the mockery and murder of the democracy. The party stated that he was sent to prison on 10 August 2017 after being held convicted in a corruption case.
A SDF press release issued by its spokesperson, JB Darnal expressed that SDF party defined the day of 10 August as the BhrashtacharSthapana Diwas, as it was the black day in the Sikkim political history when a corrupt leader came out after one year imprisonment in a corruption case. The release questioned that how 10 August became Jan Unmukti Diwas on the release of Mr Golay from the jail after one year imprisonment for a corruption in a people welfare plan of SDF party of distributing the milching cows to the people when he was the Animal Husbandry Minister from 1994 to 1999. It is added that the convicted person in the corruption was always anti-people and anti-social. The release added that SDF party and its leader Pawan Chamling was good for Mr Golay when he was the Minister from 1994 to 2009 and had started the political revenge in 2009 when he had not got the cabinet Minister post.
The release questioned that Mr Golay became the MLA for the first time in 1993 due to the blessing of Pawan Chamling and then became the Minister for 15 years and MLA for three years of Upper Burtuk. It is alleged that he had never raise the voice for any class and category when he was the Minister for 15 years but instead always harassed the opposition party workers and had involved in undemocratic act of troubling the opposition leaders. On the same, the release asserted that after such acts now to talk about pro-people and Jan Unmukti was very humorous. Now the comparing himself with the world famous leaders after spending one year in the jail for a corruption charge, Mr Golay is making the joke of the sacrifice and dedication of these world class leaders, the release added. The release questioned that what Mr Golay has done like world leaders, Nelson Mandela, Bishweshwar Prasad Koirala and Aung San Suu Kyi. On the same, the party stressed that it was better for a corrupt and opportunist leader, PS Golay not to speak and write on this issue.
The release mentioned that in his address in the BhrashtacharSthapana Diwas, SKM spokesperson alleged that the earlier government had conspired to put PS Golay in the jail on raising the voice of the people. On the same, he questioned Jacob Khaling that does the Chief Minister having any such provision to send a person into jail for raising the voice of the people. It is further questioned that whether the CM can send anyone jail with his desire.
SDF party has expressed its best wishes to SKM to work more than the SDF government in the field of social justice, women empowerment and equality and people centric developmental activities, benefits and facilities to the people.
