Chamling unveiled a life size statue of Kazi Lhendup Dorji



Gangtok, May 16: Sikkim paid rich honor to the 1973 pro-demoracy martyr Birkha Bahadur Gurung who led to the erstwhile Chogyal kingdom becoming the 22nd state of India on this day. Chief Minister Pawan Chamling posthumously awarded the L D Kazi award for Democratic Movement to martyr Gurung, who sacrificed his life in the 1973 uprising. The award carried a citation and a cheque of Rs one lakh.
On the occasion of 34th State Day, Chief Minister unveiled a life size statue of Kazi Lhendup Dorji Khangsherpa, Father of Democracy of Sikkim, at Chintan Bhawan here today.
"Mr Kazi's contribution was immense for Sikkim and we must take inspiration from him. Credit for today's developed Sikkim goes to him and his democratic soldiers," Chamling said.
It was on May 16, 1975 that the Himalayan kingdom held a referendum that favoured its merger with India thus making it a full fledged state under the chief-ministership of late Kazi.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. 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)
