New Delhi, Aug 7 : Union Minister of Urban Development S. Jaipal Reddy has assured Sikkim Chief Minister Dr. Pawan Chamling to provide all necessary help and assistance for the development of urban amenities and urban infrastructure in the State.
Dr. Chamling thanked him for expeditious consideration of important proposals of Sikkim that have contributed to the accelerated development of the State in field of urban development.
Dr. Chamling urged Reddy to allot a suitable plot of land for construction of an additional Sikkim House facility at Delhi for the benefit of visiting officials or people from Sikkim to Delhi.
The existing New Sikkim House facility at 14, Panchsheel Marg, Chankyapuri, which was allotted nearly 30 years ago and has only 32 rooms, is not in a position to cater to the present day requirements that have since increased manifold.
Reddy stated that his Ministry would consider the allotment of land for an additional New Sikkim House in Delhi.
