SKM fact-finding team to look into Organic Mission claims

GANGTOK, 04 Aug: Sikkim Krantikari Morcha has set up a fact-finding team to look into the claims of the Organic Mission in Sikkim. The team is headed by Martam-Rumtek MLA, Dr Mechung Bhutia, who has been challenging the Organic Mission model and procedures.
An SKM press release informs that this was decided at a meeting called by the SKM party president, PS Tamang [Golay] at the party head office today. The team has former Gangtok Mayor, KN Topgay, as member secretary, Nabin Karki [retd Joint Director, Horticulture/ Agriculture Department] and PK Subba [retd Deputy Director, Horticulture/ Agriculture  Department] as technical experts along with Dilip Rai [general secretary, Press and Publicity] and Bikash Basnet [secretary, Press and Publicity] as members.
“The party’s contention is that the SDF led government has deliberately misguided many of the central government agencies regarding its organic mission which, in fact is an eye wash to siphon off funds which the Central government provides to promote organic farming,” the release alleges.
