RANGPO WINTER CAMP BIDS FAREWELL TO RAMA RAO

RANGPO, October 25: The public of Rangpo today gave a tearful adieu to the former Governor V Rama Rao at his Winter Camp here.

Various businessmen, youth and women were present during the farewell ceremony. Mrs. Rao was also present during the occasion.

All the delegates present in the ceremony presented floral bouquets as a token of love and respect to Mr. Rao.

In his short address, the outgoing Governor said he was very impressed by the natural beauty of Sikkim and touched by the hospitality of the people of Rangpo Bazaar.

Prominent businessman of Rangpo, Swaminath Prasad, in his address thanked the former Governor and also the Chief Minister for their personal interests towards the development of the State.

A final guard of honour was also given to Mr. Rao by the ITBP Jawans of Winter Camp Rangpo.

During his five year tenure, Mr, Rao had chosen Rangpo as his official residence during winter months when the Raj Bhawan in Gangtok located above 6,000 ft gets too cold.

Mr. Rao had taken charge on October 25, 2002, from Kedarnath Sahani. In his five year term, the 71-year-old Rao had taken keen interest in rural development and Panchayati Raj system. He had visited almost all parts of Sikkim and interacted with the Panchayats and village people.

In an earlier interaction with mediapersons, Mr Rao said that Sikkim has a bright future and on the right track towards further development and prosperity.

I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
