Gangtok: Bharatiya Janata Party in Sikkim has assured that ’11 left out communities will secure reservation, before the West Bengal election’. The State BJP Unit asserted on the same as ‘the first step towards a permanent political solution in the Hills-Terai region’ claiming the same to be a ‘Samman (respect) for the Gorkha community for all their contribution. “When reservation can happen for Limboo-Tamang communities, why not 11 left out communities as well?” asked the Sikkim BJP.

Sikkim BJP Spokesperson Dr Raju Giri, addressing the media at the State Capital on Tuesday, stated, “The decision has been reached at after deliberation between Home Minister Amit Shah and Darjeeling MP Raju Bista. The reservation of the 11 left out communities will happen, there are many hurdles but ‘Modi Hai toh Mumkin Hai’. When Limboo Tamang Reservation can happen, the BJP government is devoted to uplifting other left out weaker sections of the communities as well.”

The State BJP said Special Hill Tribes status, similar to a section of communities in Himachal Pradesh, can also be recognised, asserting on the same to be ‘Special Corridor’ here in Hills-Terai region.

Taking note of the ongoing ‘Farmers Bill Protest’ in the Delhi-NCR region, the Sikkim BJP backed the Farmers Bill to be for the benefit of the farmers. While condemning the protest to be backed by ‘Invisible Forces’ placing demands for Khalistan.

“There is no way that the Farmers Bill can be pulled back, It will be against the farmers if it is done so, as the real farmers of the country are not in protest. The Bill is in favour of cutting out the middleman, it is a way of making profits by the farmers. We are trying to assure the independence of the farmers. In Sikkim with our organic farming, we do not have big plantations, but what is enough to be self-sufficient for household and that is as much as we produce. Anything beyond is managed through Farmers Producers Organizations, with the right price, to any market or directly to the consumers,” the BJP said.
