Gangtok, Feb. 4: P.S. Golay floated a new political party Sikkim Krantikari Morcha in West Sikkim today.
Around 10,000 people attended the event at Soreng, Golay’s native place.
Most of the members on the ad hoc committee of the new party are retired bureaucrats and dissident SDF workers.
“Our leader (without naming Golay) has envisaged a vision of building a new Sikkim opposing rampant corruption. The dream has eventually come true and we are his crusaders,” said the party’s publicity secretary M.N. Dahal.
“A meeting of the ad hoc executive committee will be held on February 8. The election of the president and other central executive members will be held during the meeting,” said party vice-president Bhoj Raj Rai, a former SDF MLA.
The party flag and constitution were also unveiled today.
