Sikkim: CM Golay announces increase in pensions for former legislators
CM Golay highlighted the 48 years of democracy in Sikkim as the collective contribution and responsibility of every legislator.

Gangtok: On the occasion of World Environment Day, Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang asked people to plant trees on barren land.

Addressing a gathering after planting an ‘Arucha’ sapling on a government college campus on Monday, he said people should try to mitigate the impact of climate change and global warming by planting more trees and ensuring that no land remained barren in the state.

Tamang urged people to make the state government’s ‘Mero Rukh Mero Santati’ (My Tree, My Offspring) scheme successful by planting 100 saplings every time a baby is born.
