Sikkim doesn’t need WB minister’s coaching: SDF

Gangtok: Sikkim Democratic Front has taken a strong exception to one West Bengal minister’s derogatory remarks on the SDF government in Sikkim in a press conference held at a hotel here on Sunday.
Without naming the minister (Asok Bhattacharjee), point to point rebuttal has been given to his insinuations regarding democracy, labour law and other matters in a press release issued by SDF General Secretary, Mr. Bhim Dahal.
“The pro-people labour friendly SDF government under the Chief Minister Dr. Pawan Chamling does need any coaching from the West Bengal minister who can not solve even an iota of problems in his own constituency, let alone the problems of his state”, the release says. It adds, “the minister is trying to divert attention of the people of his state”.
