By Correspondent

NAMCHI, Nov 22 � Sikkim has once again earned another feather to its cap marking itself in the national mainstream and has earned a new name �Little Miracle�. Sikkim has come to justify this new name through its consistent performance and achievements in many sectors.

In a press conference held today at Namchi, Chief Minister Pawan Chamling was handed over two State awards, by Principal Resident Commissioner in New Delhi, Arvind Kumar. Kumar had received the awards on behalf of the CM at the award function organised by India Today for �Best Small State, States of the States Conclave 2010� Award in New Delhi on November 19.

Since Sikkim falls in the Smaller States category, the State has received awards in two categories out of six other categories � 1) Education (primarily for literacy) and 2) Investment & Environment. It may be mentioned that Sikkim was the only State among other smaller Northeastern States, excluding Assam, which received an award at this function.

The study and research for these sectors was conducted by two Indian Economists, Vivek Deboroy and Navish Bhandari. It was also mentioned that the State could not receive awards in other four sectors; Infrastructure, Health, Governance and Macro Economy as the two Economists did not find enough data and records from the concerned departments of the State for the compilation of their research.

The Chief Minister said that these awards represented seventeen years of governance of hard work and fortitude to make the State the best of the best, and that receiving the awards always inspired and motivated him to work hard and better for the State. Chamling mentioned that the State was not able to receive awards in other four categories due to the drawback of the concerned departments in compiling their data and records.

He further said that the nickname �Little Miracle� given by the leading national magazine like India Today, shows that this is the beginning and not the end for Sikkim to march forward towards more development and achievements and that the efficiency of the State is being recognised.
