Yuksom, Sept 27
Former CM Pawan Chamling expressed to stand always for Sikkim and its people by working from SDF party till his last day in the active politics. He was addressing the 76 landslide affected families and the public of Tsong Village today.
“I have dedicated my life for the people of Sikkim and I will always stand for the people of Sikkim and we all should move together to save Sikkim from all encroachment. Politics is not a business but it needs sacrifice and dedication but presently the politics has become business in Sikkim,” he said.
Mr Chamling alleged that SKM got the mandate of the people by misleading them and it has not fulfilled a single promise made to the people before the election. He stated that it was difficult to run the government so a time of around 300 days should be given to new government but it was fail to fulfil promises then it would prove that SKM had lie to the people. He also claims that SKM government was just temporary and the State would get the new CM within 27 November.
Mr Chamling stated that he was not alone with the people and truth is with him. “We have lost the election but we should not lose our mind. SDF is the party of poor and all poor people are always with SDF party. SKM is not the party of poor but it is the party of big businessmen and contractors,” he said. He stated that SDF has not lost the election but it was the defeat of Sikkim and its people so everyone needs to go ahead together.
He alleged that an environment of insecurity and unrest has been created in SKM government and the people have been living in fear and terror. He urged the people to forget what had happened in the last election and to stay with SDF party for the better future of Sikkim. He also thanked the people for given their mandate to SDF for running the government for five consecutive times and for given more votes than SKM in this last election. He mentioned that the people have not rejected SDF but has given more votes than SKM.
Mr Chamling mentioned that the people of Sikkim should do politics, business or any profession wisely and added that the people of Sikkim should develop new mindset of to live wisely. On the same, he stated that Sikkim was presently going on in others thinking and it would destroy the State and the people of Sikkim would become slaves in their own place. He stressed that people of Sikkim should be serious and concern on this issue.
He also appealed youths not rely on the government only but to become self-reliant. He informed that the present government has closed the Start Up scheme launched by SDF government and urged youths to start their own business by taking loans by other banks. He also speaks about various people-centric programmes of SDF government.
