Councillors remove Topgay from GMC and mayorship

GANGTOK, 26 Mar: The Gangtok Muncipal Corporation, in a “special meeting” of all councilors chaired by Deputy mayor Shakti Singh yesterday, unanimously passed a resolution removing KN Topgay as Mayor and also disqualifying him as a councilor on grounds of his having defected to another political party. Mr. Topgay, it may be recalled, had recently joined the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha and has already begun campaigning for SKM candidates, it is informed.
A press release issued by Mr. Singh today explains that Mr. Topgay’s removal is on account of the anti-defection clause included last year in the Sikkim Municipalities Act.

Ranipool Councillor Dambar Dahal moved the proposal for Mr. Topgay’s removal and this was seconded by all GMC councilors present at the meeting, the release adds.
