Former Sikkim MP PT Gyamtso quits SDF party’s primary membership

Gangtok,October17: The former Rajya Sabha member PT Gyamtso circulated copies of his letter, addressed to SDF president Dr.Pawan Chamling, giving up his primary membership of the Sikkim Democratic Front party.
Former Sikkim MP Mr. Gyamtso cited that he is resigning following the failure of SDF government to protect and preserve old laws of Sikkim as the state government has gone ahead to acquire land for hydel projects in North Sikkim including Dzongu . He also informed Party President Dr. Chamling in his letter of his unhappiness over many issues including lepcha protests , failure to reserve BL seats at Panchayat level by SDF party thus resulting in a diversion from people policies for Sikkimese.
Meanwhile,it may added that it has been a while since P T Gyamtso has been regularly seen on various opposition platforms and therefore resignation from SDF is his final adieu as per political observers.
