     Divisional Unions of Sikkim are finally compelled to launch continuous movements against the administrative apathy. The remote state of the Circle, that also devastated by the earthquake few months back, deserves more attention from the administration due to its unusual location and hazards. But on the contrary, our comrades have been grossly neglected since long. The post of DPS is vacant for long. So far, no MACP has been granted in that Division. Many posts of Postmen and MTS are vacant and there is not minimum effort to fill those up. Each year, Sikkim gets an special allocation of North-East Fund, that has not been allotted this year. Most of the maturity claims / death claims of RPLI are pending for long. 
             After series of requests and dialogues, the divisional unions have started daily one hour demonstration at Gangtok H.O. demanding settlements of these issues. Circle Union has already taken up the matter. DPS (HQ) has taken some administrative steps to resolve. Circle Union has also tried to talk to the Chief PMG, but he was not available due to Ministerial visit in West Bengal. He will be contacted soon. 
          We are with the comrades of Sikkim. If effective action is not taken by Circle/Regional Administration within a reasonable time, all divisions would be seen protesting at every corners of Circle in support of their demands. Please bring the matter into campaigning.
