New organisation formed in Sikkim to protest against CAA

By A Correspondent

GANGTOK, Dec 23 - A new organisation has been formed in Sikkim to protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and to spread awareness about the legislation among the masses.

The Sikkim Against Citizenship (Amendment) Act (SACAA) was formed by members and representatives of various social organisations and political parties of Sikkim, with the prime objective of spreading awareness about the negative impact of the CAA in the state.

Addressing a press conference at the Press Club of Sikkim on Monday, Passang Sherpa, one of the members of the organisation, strongly condemned the statement made by Chief Minister PS Golay during the Rolu Diwas programme on Saturday, with regard to implementation of the CAA in Sikkim.

He said the state government was happy and satisfied with the verbal assurance of Union Home Minister Amit Shah made in Parliament, but the verbal assurance cannot save Sikkim from the implementation of CAA.

The NGO leader expressed disappointment over the Chief Minister not speaking a single word on the Inner Line Permit which can save Sikkim from the implementation of CAA, which he termed as �really surprising�.

Sherpa said the Sikkim government was still not very clear on its stand on the implementation of CAA in the state. He said that if there was a probability of amendment of the CAA, the Sikkim government has to be active and play a vital role.

Social activist Nawin Kiran Pradhan, who is also a member of SACAA, said the organisation completely objects to the implementation of CAA in Sikkim and SACAA was formed to create awareness among the people regarding the impact of CAA on Sikkim and its people. He said the forum will organise various awareness drives. The SACAA plans to prepare a memorandum against the implementation of CAA and submit it to the government soon.
