Does anyone even read the self absorbed Q&A releases issued by Sikkim Democratic Front supremo Shri. Pawan Kumar Chamling?
Isn’t it ironic to learn about Sikkim’s greatest despotic leader preaching the rest of the State about Democracy and sanctity of Sikkim Legislative Assembly (SLA) who for the last 25 years used the sacred SLA as his personal fiefdom where the last echoes of justice and fairness were strangled and throttled. Today, in less than 3 years after having been tossed out of power the man wants to question SKM Party’s commitment to maintaining the sanctity of the Assembly.
It would be appropriate to remind him of all the misdeeds committed under his tenure. For twenty-five years there are unaccountable events when you made a mockery of the SLA by muzzling opposition members , when unethical charges were made against the members of the Press fraternity or via intoxicated speeches made against opposition members which you used to deliver in the assembly.
Sikkim will never forget the day when our Hon’ble Party President Shri PS Golay was humiliatingly ejected from the SLA when he stood to voice against your autocratic regime. Sikkim will never forget the incessant humiliation and chastising of Senior leader Shri. N.B Bhandari when he stood to confront you on several issues.It is shameful to blame SKM citing about sanctity and dignity of SLA when it was in your regime where zero hour, question hour of assembly were put on hold and also several written starred questions of opposition MLAs were put into unstarred category directly strangulating the voice of opposition members, many a times questions were never answered or unaddressed. You even boycotted the oath taking ceremony of Hon’ble Speaker of SLA and now you want to preach the rest of us about Democracy and question Hon’ble Speaker about the nature of conducting business?
And last but not the least, the people of Sikkim will never forget the silencing of two opposition MLAs by the then Speaker, Shri. KN Rai threatening them of ejection when they had questioned the Chamling Administration on several issues. When was your so called “sanctity of Democracy ” then?
Pawan Chamling, it was you who claimed that the Hon’ble Chief Minister is an illegal CM and vowed never to step foot in the Assembly. Its pity to see you eat your own words and deciding step back in. Well, better late than never as they say, we will welcome Shri. Pawan Chamling when he finally decides to step into the SLA where our legislatures will fittingly reply to all your allegations and conspiracy theories.
