His Holiness The Dalai Lama congratulated the new Chief Minister (CM) of Sikkim on his victory and expressed great hopes of prosperity under his leadership.

The Tibetan spiritual leader sent his congratulatory messages to the new CM of the state through a written statement addressing his office.

Writing to the newly elected CM of Sikkim  Prem Singh Tamang,  the Dalai Lama offered congratulations on his and his party’s success in the recent State Assembly elections.

“A great responsibility now lies ahead of you,” he wrote, “and I trust that under your leadership the people of Sikkim will see prosperity and progress. I particularly hope that you will strive to improve the lives of the less privileged people in the State.

“During my visits to Sikkim over the years, the people of Sikkim have shown me affection and warm hospitality, which I very much appreciated. The kindness and enthusiasm with which I have been received vividly reminded me of the strong emotions I felt during my first visit in 1956. I have been equally heartened by the enthusiasm and interest they have shown in how positive human values can help us deal with the challenges we face today.”

His Holiness acknowledged that last month marked the 60th anniversary of Tibetans’ life in exile. Noting that there is a sizable Tibetan community residing in Sikkim, also he expressed deep appreciation for the warm and friendly way in which Tibetans have been received.

The Dalai Lama also wished Sikkim CM every success in ensuring the well-being of the people of Sikkim.
