JORETHANG: “There is no difference in the policy of SIBLAC, BJP and SKM. These three organisations want to bury the Sikkimese Nepalis alive. All three are anti-Nepali. What do they mean by ‘Modi In, Chamling Out’? BJP wants to rule Sikkim directly from Delhi. If this happens, the people of Sikkim have to obey the orders of Delhi. Sikkim Subject, Article 371F, Rule 4/4 and Revenue Order No. 1 will be done away with. Attempts are being made to end the rule of Sikkimese in Sikkim and SKM is playing the lead role in this,” said Chief Minister and SDF president Pawan Chamling on Tuesday.
Chamling was addressing his final election rally at Jorethang ground which was attended by the SDF workers and people of Poklok-Kamrang, Namchi-Singithang and Zoom-Salghari constituencies. He mainly focused on each constituency in his speech while also targeting the SKM and its president P.S. Golay.
The SDF president maintained his allegations that the SKM wants to bring the rule of outsiders in Sikkim while BJP is trying to take over Sikkim through the SKM. He asserted that the SKM and other opposition parties will be rejected by the people and would not exist after polls.
In his speech streamed live in social media pages, Chamling directed his address to the entire people of Sikkim, party workers and those who are dissatisfied with the party at different places of the State.
“I have expended my youth and life for making the Sikkim of today. People of Sikkim are able to live with liberty and without any fear. The happiness and peace enjoyed by the people of Sikkim are my wealth and my happiness,” Chamling told the people of Sikkim. He spoke about the new programmes to be done in the next SDF government. He appealed the people to support the SDF for peace, security and development of Sikkim.
The Chief Minister also mentioned why SDF should be given the mandate again. People must vote and make SDF victorious to save Sikkim from anti-Sikkim forces, to liberate Sikkim from negative and anti-social elements, and to protect the rights and identity of the Sikkimey Janta, he said.
Chamling also made several promises and projects to be undertaken in the next SDF government. Prominent among them were a music college at Jorethang, two more districts in the State and development of many tourism spots in the State.  He reiterated to send a high-level delegation to bring Heavenly Path Organisation spiritual leader God Angel to Sikkim.
Campaigning in Sikkim ended at 5 pm. Voting for the 32 Assembly seats and lone Lok Sabha seat takes place on April 11.
