Lok Sabha MP Indra Hang Subba on Sunday attended the subdivision-level 73rd Independence Day football tournament as the chief guest at Yuksam school, West Sikkim.
In his address, the MP condemned the rumours being spread on Sikkim-Darjeeling merger adding that forces behind it have their own evil designs. The merger is impossible, he said. People of Sikkim should not be confused on this baseless issue and I appeal them not to believe such false propaganda doing rounds in social media by certain irresponsible politicians, he said.
Indra Hang asserted that Article 371F is safest under the present SKM government. The Article 371F is safe and people of Sikkim need not worry, he said. He mentioned that the SKM government is giving top priority for the economic development of the State. He called upon the youth and students to support the developmental process of the State.
Two matches were played on the day. The first match was won by Khechuperi senior secondary school while the second match was won by Gitang FC.
