GANGTOK, May 15: The Sikkim Pradesh Congress Committee (SPCC) held an emergency meeting here today to deliberate upon the growing corruption tendency in the state administration resulting in massive suffering of poor people’s miseries and agonies.

During the meeting, the SPCC deliberated upon the recent Central Auditor General Report that was recently tabled in the Assembly wherein the CAG has recommended to the Central government that the Vigilance enquiry be initiated to many government departments for defalcations and corrupt practice with almost dereliction to government financial management.

The release further says that the SDF government has reached the lofty height of corruptions never seen in the history of Sikkim earlier causing colossal loss to state exchequer for deliberately exploiting State exchequer fund for kith and kins of the power brokers. “In view of the above flagrant violation in financial management, the SPCC resolved that it would continue its struggle to mitigate the grievances of the poor by ultimately uprooting this corrupt government,” the SPCC opined in the release.

The SPCC held the emergency meeting today to “thank the CAG, Government of India for bringing out such an in depth report imposing the corruption and financial mismanagement in the State and requested the CAG to address these grievances to the government of India for immediate CBI enquiry.”

“The SPCC has resolved to continue its struggle to expose SDF party nepotism and financial bugling and hegemony for its survival and continuous exploitation of the mass Sikkimese survival and continuous exploitation of the mass Sikkimese poor people in the name of survival of ‘Chari-Khotey,” the press release said.
