Sikkim is livid that in a latest advertisement in newspapers by the Arvind Kejriwal government, Sikkim is shown to be a foreign country.
Sikkim’s chief minister Prem Singh Tamang has enjoined the issue with Kejriwal by tweeting that “Sikkim is a part of India and should not be seen thus is condemnable…”
The Delhi government advertisement is for enrolment of Volunteers for Civil Defence Corps. Sikkim has been clubbed with Bhutan and Nepal as a separate country.
Sikkim has been a part of India since 1975 when it became the 22nd state of the Indian Union.
The Sikkim government has demanded the “immediate withdrawal of the offensive advertisement and issue a suitable communique to assuage the feelings of the people of Sikkim.”
