SKM accuses SDF of trying to set its zonal office ablaze, takes out ‘Pratiwad rally’ in protest

GANGTOK, 12 Feb: Sikkim Krantikari Morcha [SKM] today took out a ‘pratiwad rally’ in Jorethang protesting an alleged attempt to set their zonal office on fire by Sikkim Democratic Front [SDF] workers last night.
In a press release, SKM has blamed former Minister and at present Political Secretary to the Chief Minister, KN Rai for the alleged rise in criminal activities in Jorethang and surrounding areas. SKM has alleged that since Mr Rai was given charge of Poklok-Kamrang constituency, anti-social activities have increased in the area.
The release alleges that SDF workers tried to set the SKM party office at Jorethang ablaze last night in order to create tension in the area. Following this incident SKM took out the pratiwad rally and asked the police administration to book the culprits as soon as possible.
SKM has also raised several other issues including alleged encroachment of UD&HD land by SDF.
The pratiwad rally covered the Jorethang bazaar and later turned into a party meeting at Jorethang ground where Biren Rai addressed the gathering.
