    Sikkim Seeks Exemption From Citizenship Act, Pawan Chamling Writes To Governor

    A delegation of the Sikkim Democratic Front submitted a memorandum before the governor in the matter

    A delegation of the Sikkim Democratic Front on December 20th, 2019, called on the Governor of the state urging to keep the state out of the purview of the newly enacted Citizenship Amendment Act.

    The delegation also submitted a memorandum before the governor in the matter in order to safeguard and uphold the spirit laid down in Article 371F of the Constitution of India which is a special provision provided for the State of Sikkim in the Constitution.

    The party has, in the memorandum, raised various issues touching upon the social, economic, political, historical and the legal aspects with reference to the state and Article 371F.

    Former state Chief Minister Pawan Chamling, who led the delegation, said, “With the enactment of the act, a deep sense of fear and insecurity has arisen in the minds of the people of the state. The people at large are very apprehensive that in case the said act is extended and enforced in the state, the same would adversely affect the rights and interest of the Sikkimese people and may also dilute the very spirit of Article 371F of the Constitution of India.”

    Besides, Chamling, while thanking the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s assurance that the state will be kept out of the purview of the act, said, “I am also confident that the assurances given by the Centre will be implemented in principle and spirit.”

    He further urged the governor to intervene in the matter to ensure that Sikkim is exempted from the extension and enforcement of the act.
