Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum members continue their dharna
Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum (SPYF) members have continued their sit-in protest near the District court premises.
Meanwhile, no representatives from the government have come forward to hold talks and resolve the issue as SPYF continued their dharna.
The members did not celebrate Dasain festival sticking to their demands instead. However, social activist Passang Sherpa visited the dharna site and put a tikka on the protesters.
After spending rainy nights under a leaking tent, the members of Sikkim Progressive Youth Forum (SPYF) continued their dharna demanding a reduction in taxi and bus fares, removal of restrictions like not allowing pillion riders on two-wheelers, etc.
There has been no communication from the government or any attempt made to resolve the deadlock amicably.
