Gangtok, March 5: Sikkim Krantikari Morcha supporters blocked the road at Namthang in South Sikkim on March 4 protesting the celebration of SDF day at Senior Secondary School in Namthang during working day.

The workers carrying pla cards stopped the movement of the vehicles demanding action by the South District authorities.

” It has been clearly notified in the Election Department notice that the political programs can be held in school grounds only on Sundays or any other government holidays. How can authorities issue permission violating the Election Commission guidelines” said the protesting SKM supporters.

The South District Collector and Superintendent of Police reached the spot and talked with the supporters in the late evening.

It was after an assurance given by the authorities that they will investigate on the matter the road was opened for the vehicle movement.
