CM Prem Singh Tamang Concludes Successful Public Outreach Program in North Sikkim
CM Tamang's Second Visit to North Sikkim Highlights Commitment
North Sikkim, October 04 2023 - Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang recently wrapped up a highly fruitful five-day public outreach initiative, known as the Janata Bhet Karyakram, in the Lachen-Mangan constituency of North Sikkim. This program, dedicated to addressing the concerns and requirements of the local population, took place from September 25th to 28th, marking the Chief Minister's second visit to North Sikkim and his first to the Lachen-Mangan constituency since assuming office in 2019.

During this intensive outreach endeavor, Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang engaged directly with the people of Lachen, Lachung, Naga, and Mangan, attentively listening to their pleas and grievances. The program witnessed active participation from residents belonging to various Gram Panchayat Units in both constituencies, who seized the opportunity to discuss a wide array of issues and requirements.

Throughout the program, CM Tamang had the opportunity to interact with nearly 3,500 individuals and extended government support by distributing hundreds of Job Cards and providing Medical Assistance. Approximately 700 individuals in Lachen, and around 800 in Lachung benefited from this initiative. Chungthang saw 150 people receiving assistance, Naga approximately 900, and Mangan received support with around 1,300 individuals.

Job seekers had the opportunity to apply for positions, with some receiving immediate job orders, while others submitted applications for verification in accordance with government requirements before receiving their job orders.

It is important to highlight that in the previous election, the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) party secured victories in the Lachen-Mangan constituency, alongside Kabi-Lungchok, out of the three constituencies. However, the Dzongu constituency, representing the indigenous Lepcha tribe, was not won by SKM. Looking ahead to the 2024 elections, SKM aims to secure the Dzongu constituency as well. CM Tamang, however, emphasized that the Janata Bhet Karyakram was not driven by political motivations but rather centered on addressing the needs of the underprivileged and disadvantaged citizens.

This five-day public outreach program underscores the Chief Minister's commitment to connecting with the grassroots and ensuring that the government remains responsive to the concerns and needs of its constituents. It reflects a dedication to serving the people of North Sikkim and striving for inclusive development in the region.
