Chamling seeks people’s support

Gangtok, May 22 – Sikkim could be turned into model eco State if people and government worked in tandem, Chief Minister Pawan Chamling said yesterday.

Without the support of people my hands will be literally tied and the kind of work we dream to execute won’t be possible, Chamling said on the fourth day of the 36-day marathon tour of the Chief Minister for directly interacting with people.

At the meeting at Maniram Singhithan, the Chief Minister asked the gathering to be more precise in their demands to the government “instead of coming with petty requests.”

The Chief Minister inaugurated the first ever MGNREGA Rajiv Gandhi Sewa Kendra at Tanjzi Bikmat GPU.
