Gangtok Mayor and Namchi’s municipal chairman ditch SDF, join SKM

GANGTOK, 23 Mar: Gangtok Mayor, KN Topgay, and Namchi Municipal Council chairperson, BT Tamang officially joined the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha on Saturday. Mr Topgay along with his supporters came out in a rally from Lall Bazaar to the SKM head-office to join the party.
Addressing the gathering in the SKM office, Mr. Topgay clarified that he was not disheartened that he did not get a ticket from the SDF party to contest the 2014 elections. However, he accused the SDF party president of being a dictator and said that absolute power will corrupt the powerful.
He has now extended full support to SKM in what he sees as a fight against the “autocratic rule” of SDF in the state. People of Sikkim are ready to remove SDF from power, he added.
Mr Topgay went on to allege that the GMC and other urban bodies have no authority and are only expected to look after garbage disposal, jhora cleaning and licenses. He further alleged corruption in the government departments and that the ruling party is misleading people with false promises.

Likewise, Mr Tamang also alleged that NMC enjoyed no power and that the Namchi administration is run by the CM’s family. He stated that he has joined SKM to work for the people of Sikkim and alleged that there has been no real development in the state under the SDF government.
