As per the report last night at around 1 to 2 am the vehicle was set ablaze which was parked at near Jorethang School. Since the vehicle is owned by the SKM Karyakarta so it was filled with SKM Party calendar, magazine and diary.
On this incident, Ranjana Pradhan, Secretary (Press and Publicity Cell), Sikkim Krantikari Morcha writes “SDF Party which came to power propagating their ideology of terrorism and divisive politics riding on activities like burning of vehicles, stone pelting , violence etc. They established their party through violence at Allay ground, Namchi back in 1994 and continued their activities through violent campaigning throughout their tenure. SDF after being kicked out from the chair cannot digest the exemplary work being carried out by SKM under the pragmatic leadership of Chief Minister PS Golay and its taking out its frustration on people and properties.
It was also mentioned that SKM Party strongly condemns the heinous acts of violence perpetrated against the Sikkimay Janta. FIR has been lodged against the active SDF youths namely Cannon Rai , Meshak Chettri and Sunil Lama at Jorethang Police station , today morning.
