Sikkim Chief minister Pawan Chamling said Home Minister Rajnath Singh has positively responded to his plea about easing the hardships faced by people of the state post the Centre’s demonetisation move. “I had referred to the fact that State Bank of Sikkim (SBS) does not come under Banking Regulation Act, 1949 due to the special rights and status enjoyed by the Sikkimese people under Article 371(F) of the Constitution and Rajnath Singh has responded positively.”

He informed that Rajnath had consequently sent a letter to Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley where he referred to Sikkim’s contention about SBS enjoying constitutional protection by virtue of Article 371(F) of the Constitution of India and urge RBI to keep that in mind. Urging the people of state not to be swayed by rumours, Chamling stated such acts were harming the interests of the state and asked them to act responsibly and not question the sanctity of a sacred institution such as SBS.

“I am extremely grateful for the stand taken by the Home Minister in upholding the sanctity and status of SBS, guaranteed under Article 371(F) of the Constitution. And I take this opportunity to appeal to all of you to stay away from rumours being spread by unmindful individuals, lacking in depth and judgement,” he stated.
