Jan Sampark Abhiyan under Rhenock Constituency, 2018

Today on the third day of my East District tour, I met the people of 19-Rhenock Constituency. Addressing the gathering at Amba-Mamring, I said that the people of the State should see and compare what Sikkim was before we formed the Government and what it is today. The younger generation may not be aware of the scenario that prevailed in the State prior to December 1994. But the elders will agree with me that our people back then were denied their democratic rights as also their basic minimum needs. Most […]

Jan Sampark Abhiyan under Tumin-Lingee Constituency, 2018

On the second day of my East District tour, I met the people of 16- Tumin- Lingee constituency at Makha. Addressing the gathering at Makha bazaar, I appealed to the people, especially the students and youths to be aware of their democratic rights, which is of paramount importance. If people are not fully aware of their rights as citizens under a democratic set-up, they will be easily deceived by those who disguise themselves as their well-wishers; and misguide and mislead them for their own selfish needs. I gave an account […]

Interactive Public Meeting under Rinchenpong Constituency

On the third day of my tour to the West District, I visited Rinchenpong Constituency and attended a public meeting. Addressing the gathering, I spoke on the fact that our people are yet to understand the real meaning of development.

However, these are not […]

World Health Day, 2018

Attended the World Health Day 2018, with the theme Universal Health Coverage (Towards Elimination of Tuberculosis (TB) by 2022) at Chintan Bhawan. I urged everyone concerned not to confine this day to being an annual function, but to spread the message about the importance of being healthy.
