Sikkim cut off from the rest of the country for 5th day


GANGTOK/RANGPO, June 20: Sikkim remained cut off from the rest of the country for the fifth consecutive day today due to the ongoing blockade on National Highway 31-A called by the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJMM) to press for its demand for a separate Gorkhaland demand.
Except for ambulance, press, vehicles carrying students and vehicles carrying LPG cylinders, no other vehicles are permitted to ply from Rangpo, West Bengal side.
The State may not be affected with the shortage of LPG as more than 15 trucks carrying LPG cylinders entered in two days from Rangpo Checkpost.
Yesterday, an SNT tanker was not allowed to pass as the Morcha picketers slept on the Highway.
Meanwhile, a huge rally was organized today at Rangpo, West Bengal side where more then 500 youth and Nari Morcha members shouted slogans for the fulfillment of their demand for a separate State.
Morcha supporters today hinted that the indefinite bandh, which started from last Monday, is expected to continue for 45 days.

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)
