                              PRESS RELEASE
Sikkim Lok Sabha MP Prem Das Rai and Rajya Sabha MP Hishey Lachungpa mourned the demise of sitting Nagaland Rajya Sabha MP Khekiho Zhimomi. Zhimomi was admitted at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for the past few days and died this morning after suffering a stroke.

The Sikkim parliamentarians visited AIIMS to pay their respects to the departed leader by offering the traditional Khadas. They also participated in the prayer service conducted by a Naga pastor for the deceased leader.
The service was also attended by former Chief Minister and sitting Nagaland Lok Sabha member Neiphiu Rio, Government of India's Special Interlocutor for the Naga peace talks Ravindra Narayan Ravi and members of the Naga community in Delhi. Zhimomi was a staunch supporter of the recently inked Naga Peace Accord.

He also served as the Cabinet Minister of Industry, Commerce, Mining and Border Affairs in the Government of Nagaland.
As a mark of respect to the passing away of a sitting member, the Rajya Sabha was adjourned for the day. In the obituary reference, Rajya Sabha Chairman M Hamid Ansari described Zhimomi as an "active social worker who strived for the upliftment of weaker and downtrodden sections of society".

Zhimomi is survived by his wife, two sons and seven daughters.

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)
