Bimal Gurung's Press Release congratulating Shri. Pawan Kr. Chamling for becoming the longest serving Chief Minister in India.
On behalf of the people of Darjeeling-Terai-Duar region, and the Gorkha community living across India and the world, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Shri. Pawan Kr. Chamling for becoming the longest serving Chief Minister in India.
The life of Shri. Pawan Kumar Chamling is an inspiration for all of us to follow. There was a time when he was forced to live outside Sikkim following threats to his life, but he never gave up on the land of his forefathers, and its people. Instead he struggled to restore democracy and rule of law in Sikkim. It is his never give up attitude, perseverance, and dedication towards Sikkim that has today resulted in him becoming one of the most enduring and popular Chief Ministers of our nation.
Through his actions, he has inspired generations of youths not only in Sikkim but also all over India to dream big and have the courage and the conviction to make those dreams come true. Sikkim today leads on numerous fronts - from becoming the first state to achieve 100% sanitation goals, to becoming the first and only organic state in India. All of these achievements have been made possible, because of his inspirational leadership.
His unflinching support to the people of Darjeeling during all our hardships has earned him love and respect from all sections of our society. His government's support to Gorkhaland statehood has given hope to all our people, and his constant reiteration of fraternity and brotherhood between Darjeeling and Sikkim is what inspires us to realize, we will never be alone
Once again, I congratulate Shri. Pawan Kr Chamling ji, and thank him for being an inspiration that everyone in India can look up to.
