Gangtok Mayor likely to join SKM

GANGTOK, 21 Mar: Political loyalties continue to fluctuate with news of the Gangtok Mayor KN Topgay expected to tender his resignation from the post of Mayor, quit the party on 22 March and officially join the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha [SKM].
As of now, this is not official but sources inform that he has made up his mind of resigning from the post of Mayor, and the Sikkim Democratic Front [SDF] party and then join the SKM party.
Sources close to Mr. Topgay admit that he was an SDF party ticket aspirant for either Gangtok or Syari, but what pushed him over the edge was what he saw as dismissive and almost hostile attitude of some of his colleagues in the party who are now the official candidates.

SKM party officials, when contacted, confirmed that they were in talks with Mr. Topgay, but said that nothing was official yet. As mentioned, it is likely that he will complete the formalities on Saturday. Speculations are rife that he is being considered for the Gangtok ticket by SKM. Gangtok is among the 10 constituencies for which the party has not announced it candidates yet.
