GANGTOK, May 25 - The result of the lone Lok Sabha constituency in Sikkim went on a predictable line with Indra Hang Subba of the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) winning the seat. Over the past four decades, voters of Sikkim have traditionally sent the State�s ruling party candidate to the Lok Sabha, and this time, too, they did not make any exception.
The SKM has won the Assembly polls with a slender majority � winning 17 seats against SDF�s 15.
SKM�s Subba polled 1,54,999 votes, defeating his nearest rival, DB Katwal of the Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF), by over 11,000 votes. Katwal bagged 1,43,414 votes. There were 11 candidates in the fray for the seat. � PTI
