The Sikkim state BJP has alleged that the Pawan Chamling led SDF government in the state is deliberately enlisting Below Poverty Line (BPL) category people into Above Poverty Line (APL) category to present a false picture of a prosperous and rich state.

The party, in a press release issued on Tuesday said that the government is doing it to earn accolades from the Centre. The release also stated that such acts have had a detrimental effect on people of the BPL category, who are being denied the central benefits that are due to them.

The party also complained of irregular and improper distribution of rice under the Public Distribution System (PDS) especially to families falling under the BPL category. The BJP alleged that the state government uses PDS as a political tool during elections to lure BPL voters by promising free rice every month but as per complaints they are not been given the adequate amount of rice that they are entitled to.
