Electoral triumph in three States has revitalized Sikkim BJP: Thapa

GANGTOK,: The Sikkim BJP unit on Monday organized victory celebrations in all district party offices to commemorate the remarkable triumph of the BJP in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh Assembly elections.

State BJP president DR Thapa attended the celebration at the Gangtok party office with chief advisor Tseten Tashi Bhutia, party functionaries and workers, a party release informs.

Addressing the gathering, the State BJP president stated that the BJP's remarkable triumph in these three States has revitalized BJP Sikkim and seen it as a positive sign. He attributed this success to the effective governance and welfare initiatives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre, as well as the progress made by BJP governments in various States.

Thapa emphasized that most States have reposed their trust in the BJP due to these factors, highlighting Sikkim's lag in this regard. He mentioned that over the past 48 years, regional parties have burdened Sikkim with a debt exceeding Rs. 50 thousand crore, without making any significant contributions to infrastructure development.

Thapa asserted that only the BJP can steer Sikkim in the right direction. In Sikkim, the BJP is the sole party that has reached every household with its various schemes, even without being in State government, he said.

Thapa emphasized that only the BJP can establish a transparent, corruption-free, nepotism-free, and empowered State in Sikkim, clarifying that their purpose is not to gain power but to save Sikkim.

Tseten Tashi Bhutia, the State BJP’s chief advisor, emphasized that the BJP is the only option to eliminate Sikkim's debt and regain the rights that have been lost. He mentioned that by drawing inspiration from the party's recent victories in three States, he is confident in achieving success in Sikkim.

The programme was also addressed by party advisor Karma P Bhutia, vice-president D.C. Nepal, Pema Wangyal Rinzing, Chakrapani Bhattarai, and others, the release mentions.
