Chief Minister Pawan Chamling concludes South West Sikkim Tour

Namchi& Gangtok: “Woods are lovely dark and deep and I’ve promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep”, originally written by Robert Frost, but Chief Minister Dr. Pawan Chamling seems to be doing exactly that in his round up rural tour. Right after winding up the tour of West Sikkim and a day before the review meeting on the South district visit, Dr. Chamling visited Falaydara, Lower Boomtaar, Sallebong Rong, Sumbuk and Mazitaar, the area which was left in the first phase of his south district visit.
In Mazitaar he inaugurated a newly built Government Lower Primary School and urged the students to be creative and productive and be good individuals rather than only successful ones. Addressing the public in the compound area, Chief Minister referred to the demand of regularisation of forest land occupied by the people. He directed the Forest Department to take up the matter with the Government of India for forest clearance in the interest of the people.
During this visit his message to the people of this area was to realize how the present government has been persistent to provide the people with the quality services and fill their lives with happiness index which is running north. In Sallebong, he pointed out how the value of the remotest of remote areas of the state has shot up in this last 17 years of his governance, which just go to indicate how much development and positive growth has taken place in Sikkim.
He was also very emphatic about how people should also come forward to contribute and shoulder the responsibilities of making Sikkim more prosperous with the kind of rights and facilities they are enjoying and benefiting from.
During his visit to Rong he dropped in the Government School there and the students of the school welcomed him with zeal and passion which was sparkling in their eyes to see the leader who has ushered the state towards the path of prosperity.
Chief Minister was also presented with a sapling of medicinal plant by the students of the school. He also appreciated the sample demo of the medicinal plants and herbs which was displayed by the students of the school.
We have seen the ground reality and the kinds of problem being faced by the people and have marked the areas of concern and these little hitches will soon be things of the past Dr. Chamling affirmed.
In Sumbuk, where a large gathering welcomed him in the Block Administrative Centre compound, he gave a patient hearing to the people and listened to the problems faced by them. He asked them to come forward and inform individually as he did in all the areas and places he has visited so far.
Dr. Chamling’s on going rural tour is something unprecedented and unparalleled in any other state of the country. By taking the government and the government machinery close to individuals in remotest of remote places of the state, the Chief Minister has been able to dispel any doubts or reservations people had against the government functioning, it is widely believed by the people now.
