State appoints administrator for Kalimpong Municipality

Kalimpong,22nd Dec

The state government appointed an administrator to run the Kalimpong Municipality after the present board’s five-year term ended today.

Kalimpong SDO Nirmalaya Gharami took over charge from Ganga Maya Gurung today around 4 pm. The GJMM was in control of the board with no Opposition from December 2011.

The SDO will now function as the administrator of the Kalimpong Municipality until the civic body elections are held.
Ganga Maya Gurung, outgoing chairman, said “We did our level best to work for the development of the area.”

“We resolved the problem of garbage as we purchased land and built a bio gas plant at Bhalukhop GP where about 150 youth have got employment,” she said. She said many projects are pending which will have to be completed by the next board.”

The Morcha Board filled up 46 vacant posts in its tenure.

SDO Kalimpong Nirmalaya Gharami said: “I have to execute my duty as per government rules.They have handed over to me all the responsibilities.”

“This is totally a new role for me, so I have to take my seniors’ help to execute my duties.”

All eyes will be now on Kalimpong civic body elections
where the ruling party GJM got a setback during the Assembly election when the newly formed Jan Andolan Party won in 17 wards out of 23. The JAP’s student wing too won the College union election by defeating the GJMM’s student week last week.
JAP was supported by TMC during the MLA elections but the differences between JAP and TMC were seen when the CM in September announced that her government formed the Kalimpong district without anybody’s request
