Gangtok Times Report
Gangtok, Feb 8
Sikkim Democratic Front party has strongly criticised and condemned the inappropriate language used by Sangha MLA Sonam Lama against the Chief Minister in his recent address at SKM party foundation day celebration. The ruling party stated that the language of a SKM MLA proves indiscipline, anarchism and violent nature of SKM party.
Addressing a press conference here today, SDF general secretary [press & publicity] Kavita Subba asserted that it was not even suitable to call Sangha MLA a monk for using such inappropriate language. She stated that Sonam Lama has accused a leader who was the CM with the people’s mandate for 25 years and the longest CM of the country so to accuse him in inappropriate language was to accuse the people who gave their mandate to the CM.
Ms Subba questioned that who gave the right to Sangha MLA to even say to drag out the CM from Mintokgang after three months. She added that such statement shows his feudal thoughts. She stated that politics should be creative and productive but oppositions have been engaged in personal attacks, spreading propaganda and conspiracies. She expressed that declining standard of the politics of SKM party was very saddening. She further added that SKM party was leading by a corrupt and convicted leader and speech of Sangha MLA shows the nature and structure of SKM party.
Speaking on women empowerment, Ms Subba stated that low mentality of SKM party would not able to understand works of SDF party in women empowerment. She added that a broad and open mind was needed to accept and understand works of SDF party for equality, protection and empowerment of women in Sikkim and to take them in all sectors. She added that SKM party does not have any creative and innovative programme for women but has been doing propaganda by taking an incomplete clip of a video of the CM.
SDF general secretary, Amber Rai stated that SKM, Hamro Sikkim Party and other oppositions claiming itself a youth-party but SDF party was always a youth-centric party since inception which had given ticket to 25-years old PS Golay. However, he stated that in politics youths should not only be by age but have the quality and capacity to lead the society. He added that SDF still has place for positive youths in the party who can contribute in the state building process.
“We are not accusing youths in SKM party but SKM party and its leader has been leading youths on the wrong and negative path. We are not calling SKM a goonda party but it was a universal truth due to act and deeds of SKM leader,” Mr Rai said.
He stated that the foundation day of SKM party was the propaganda to make false allegation and to spread misinformation but the party totally failed when the people did not turn out for the programme and by seeing it Sangh MLA used inappropriate language although being a monk. He stressed that such monk would create unrest and war in the society.
SDF general secretary, Krishna Lepcha mentioned that SDF party has been working on its political issue to make Sikkim the best state of the world. “We are continuing with our mission in making Sikkim the model state in different areas and the best state of the world,” he said. He added that it was important to see the track record and works of SDF government to understand its contributions to the State.
Mr Lepcha lashes out on SKM party for doing the politics of propaganda and misinformation and for misleading the people. He added that SKM call for the state bandh was just to obstruct the development of Sikkim.
