In an attempt to terminate the emerging national security risks, the Sikkimey Nagarik Samaj (SNS) demanded the state government to adopt a resolution urging the requirement of Inner Line Permit (ILP) system for the northeastern state.
The party have urged state government to raise the issue during the upcoming Assembly session, slated to commence from December 5, and forward it to the Union government for further consideration.
While addressing a press conference on Wednesday, SNS president Bharat Basnett asserted that continuous influx crossing the sensitive border could lead to national security risks.
He further maintained that the Union Home Minister Amit Shah also gave the assurance for the same during the Citizenship Amendment Bill debate.
Meanwhile, the party have called-for an immediate halt into several Public-Private Partnership (PPP), currently undergoing across the tiny Himalayan state.
Recently, the SNS had filed a complaint at the Urban Affairs ministry against the mega construction project in Gangtok.
Accordingly, the ministry has directed the Urban Development department and Gangtok Smart City Ltd for “immediate appropriate action”, and submit a report at the earliest, informed the SNS President.
