Sikkim Review

Gangtok, dec 7:

The issue of visit of the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Thinley Dorji to Sikkim raised in Sikkim Legislative Assembly today.  Minister, Ecclesiastical Department,  Sonam Lama, in his reply to a question put forth by MLA N.K. Subba, informed that The Central Committee on Security (CCS) of the Government of India granted permission to His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Thinley Dorji to visit Sikkim (minus Rumtek Monastery) in March, 2018. However, the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Thinley Dorji left India for Europe the same year. The State Government has kept aside a separate fund of Rupees One Crore for the visit of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Thinley Dorji to Sikkim. A delegation from Sikkim will soon be visiting H.H. the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Thinley Dorji to request him to visit Sikkim. Meanwhile, the Government has constantly pressed its demand to the Central Government for the visit of His Holiness to Sikkim.
