Sikkim: Education minister Kunga Nima Lepcha rushed to Delhi for Septicimia

Lepcha, one of the founding members of Sikkim Krantikari Morcha, will be treated at BLK Super Speciality Hospital in New Delhi

Gangtok: Sikkim's Education Minister Kunga Nima Lepcha was taken to New Delhi on Wednesday morning for treatment related to Septicemia, a serious bloodstream infection.

The Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) leader was admitted to Sir Thutob Namgyal Memorial (STNM) Hospital on Tuesday night at around 9.30. His pre-existing leg condition got worse, and his blood pressure shot up, said Biskash Basnett, SKM senior leader.

Lepcha will be treated at BLK Super Speciality Hospital.

He was flown in a Pawan Hans helicopter from Gangtok to Siliguri and is headed to Delhi in an air ambulance from Baghdogra. Two family members and a small medical team are accompanying him.

Lepcha is one of the founding members of SKM, alongside Chief Minister Prem Singh Golay and rural development minister Sonam Lama. He was a bureaucrat in the Sikkim government before he made his move to the SKM party in 2009.
