Meanwhile, the Gorkha National Liberation Front welcomed the announcement made by Mr Tamang to name Rohini Road after their leader Subash Ghisingh. “We welcome the decision to name Rohini Road after our leader as it was he who built it.
We also  welcome Mr Tamang’s announcement that the toll collected on the road would be stopped from April. This was what our leader Subash Ghisingh also wanted,” GNLF Central Programme Cell convener, Y Lama said. As comments made by Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJMM) leader Binoy Tamang against the Sikkim government raised a few eyebrows, the ruling Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) on Monday said it reserved its comment on the matter, even as the opposition Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) said there were vested interests of the two leaders (Mr Tamang and CM Pawan Kumar Chamling) in play in the entire matter.
When contacted, a top SDF  leader in Gangtok said the party is not officially commenting on the issue for now, and that it will say something on it “at a relevant time.” SDF sources, however, said that Mr Tamang’s statements were “unwarranted and uncalledfor.” Addressing a public meeting at Sukna near Siliguri yesterday, the GJMM leader had warned Sikkim against “meddling’ in Hill politics.
Opposition SKM spokesperson Jacob Khaling said the statement was a result of a personal clash and vested interests of Mr Tamang and Mr Chamling. “Mr Tamang’s words were not directed towards the Sikkim people. In a bid to meet their personal gains, Mr Chamling should not use the citizens of Sikkim, while Mr Tamang should also not blame the Sikkim people,” he said.
