Sikkim CM meets DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh

New Delhi, Jun 18 (UNI) Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang on Tuesday met Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER) Minister Jitendra Singh and discussed various developmental projects including tourism in the state.

The chief minister is currently on his first visit to the capital city after taking over his present assignment.

During the meeting, Mr Tamang spelt out a number of projects which the State government wishes to be taken up on priority. These include three tourism projects, namely Bhaley Dhunga SkyWalk project at Yangang in South Sikkim, passenger ropeway from Pelling to Sangachoeling in West Sikkim and tourist resort at Yuksom, the DoNER ministry said in a statement.

The chief minister also requested for financial support to complete the multi-speciality hospital which was constructed recently. According to him, the DoNER Ministry had earlier agreed to provide Rs.1.6 crore for medical equipment and furniture and accordingly the DPR has been submitted to the North East Council (NEC).

The memorandum submitted by the chief minister on behalf of the State Government also included 60 bedded Hospital at Mangong at a cost of Rs 20 crore. The project, according to Chief Minister, has been retained by NEC.

DoNER Minister Jitendra Singh, while congratulating Mr Tamang for taking over as Chief Minister, said that he will direct the officials in the DoNER Ministry to deliberate on the list of priority projects submitted to him.

He also issued instructions that an official level meeting between the officers of the State of Sikkim and officers of DoNER will be held to come out with a brief note regarding the feasibility and possible budget allocation for these projects.
