The ruling Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) on Saturday accused the opposition parties of trying to defame Sikkim and its people by making false allegation of corruption against it and the Chief Minister Pawan Chamling.
The SDF spokesperson KT Gyaltsen stated that the opposition should not insult and defame the mandate of the people of Sikkim if they did not have any proof and base of their allegations.
Addressing a press conference here, Gyaltsen said, “The CM has continued with his works for the people despite of facing criticism and false allegations in these 24 years.”
“Since they are making these allegations without evidence and base so they are mentally corrupt,” he said adding the people of Sikkim have given the mandate to Pawan Chamling for five consecutive times.
He mentioned that the SDF government had established 1000-bed new STNM Super Specialty Hospital in the interest of the people and launched ‘One Family, One Job’ scheme on the humanitarian ground to provide the government job to every family.
He added that the government has been providing crores of benefits to the people in Janta Mela. While refuted the allegations on the government of distributing benefits to the people near the election, he stated that Janta Mela was the annual programme of the SDF government.
He stated that opposition SKM party does not have any vision, programme and policy so they are not happy with the good works of SDF party for the people of Sikkim. He questioned on the intention of SKM party on misinterpreted positive and comprehensive statement of the CM.
Speaking on activities of opposition parties, Gyalshing stated that Hamro Sikkim Party has been running without any leader and shows the interference of the outside force in the party.
On the recent meeting of SKM president, PS Golay and Hamro Sikkim Party vice-president Bhaichung Bhutia, he said that the talks for alliance proves that no party in Sikkim can stop SDF party to form the government again in 2019.
