The president of the Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) and former chief minister, Pawan Chamling, on Friday, launched an online Q&A which his party said would reach out to the people of Sikkim.

Chamling would address one question every week to keep in touch with the people.

“I, being a firm believer in the democratic form of politics, feel responsible to answer those questions. Perhaps some of those questions have been asked by those who are driven by mindless hatred and resentment against me. However, people have every right to know my take on issues, questions, criticisms, allegations and even abuses,” Chamling said.

Answering his first question, Chamling stated that the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) has the moral right to govern the state for their full term.

“No one can challenge this public mandate,” he said.

Further, he said that people had not rejected him or his party, and neither have the voters removed the party from state politics.

“I am keeping a close watch over the governance, and the present government has not been able to deliver their poll promises,” he said.

“We are waiting patiently, hoping for the government to grow up and deliver. We will make them give their account to the people,” he added.
