Gangtok: Chief minister Pawan Chamling lashes out at the Opposition parties in Sikkim for their continuous criticism on various government-sponsored public welfare schemes.
Addressing a public rally while participating in the Janta Mela on Wednesday, chief minister Chamling has expressed serious concern over the massive criticism launched by the Opposition parties on the recently launched “one family one job” scheme.
“It’s really unfortunate that the Opposition parties are criticizing the state government for the sake of opposing something only. They are also opposing the government-sponsored welfare schemes also. It’s really unfortunate,” Chamling regretted.
On the “one family one job” scheme, Sikkim chief minister asked the Opposition parties, “Where it is written that the youths who get jobs under this scheme will be unemployed after few months?”
However, Chamling further announced that the after completion of five years in service, jobs under this scheme will be regularized.
He also stated that the state government is giving enough emphasis for development in both urban and rural areas of the state.
Elaborating on the government initiative for industrialization in Sikkim, Chamling said, “Towns of Rangpo, Singtam, Majhitar, Dikchu and Makhha have been benefited largely due to the industrialization policy of the state government.”
