Prongzum, the Kalimpong Lepcha Youth association has announced that it will give the Sikkim State Government time till Nov 30 to resolve the Dzongu imbroglio vis vis the hydel projects in Dzongu.

A Press communique issued by the Prongzum President Dorjee Lepcha informs that on 30th Nov, the relay hunger strike undertaken by the Kalimpong Lepchas in support of the Dzongu Hydel Protests will enter its 100th day and should a positive sign fail to emanate from the Sikkim government, the Darjeeling protests(now led by a joint action committee comprising of different Lepcha organisations of Sikkim & Darjeeling) will move to the next phase of the agitation.

It is not clear as to what the next phase of the agitation would mean.
