By Nenow 03-Jul-2019
He stated that this white paper was the proof that the State has the debt of more than Rs 8000 crores.
He was responding to the claims of Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) spokespersons in a press conference that Sikkim just has the debt of Rs 6000 crores and it was the lowest in the entire north-eastern region.
Speaking further in the press conference in Gangtok on Tuesday afternoon, Khaling stated that 95 per cent works for the white paper has been completed and would be placed in the upcoming Budget session to be started from July 29 next.
He mentioned that the white paper has the entire account of works of SDF government of its 25 years rule. He stated that this white paper was of liabilities on the State and loans taken by the earlier government from different institutions.
On the same, Khaling urged former chief minister to attend and participate in this Assembly session during the presentation and discussion on the white paper as it was on liabilities and loans taken by SDF government. He informed that the government would also take out second white paper.
He also refuted the claims of SDF spokespersons that Sikkim has the debt of Rs 6000 crores and it was the lowest in the north-eastern region. On the same, he stated that each person of Sikkim has the debt of around Rs one lakh if it was divided with the people of Sikkim as the census of 2011 and this was the highest in the country.
He mentioned that if the debt of other states divided into by its population then it was very low in comparison to the debt on each person of Sikkim.
Likewise, SKM spokesperson Sonam Venchungpa alleged that such huge money has gone to only one per cent section of the people of Sikkim in the SDF government.
