A meeting was held at Tashiling today between ACT and the Government. Nothing concrete was the outcome in the absence of the Hon'ble Chief Minister who is in US. He is expected to be back soon but Government sources are not sure when.
More and more support for ACT and the Satyagrahis on hunger strike has been pouring in from Gangtok and other parts of Sikkim. Lepchas from Darjeeling and Kalimpong too have been coming in regularly to voice support to the cause. Besides, Lepcha supporters, people from all walks of life and other communities too have been expressing concern and supporting the noble cause of the Satyagrahis.

Its a very appreciative and a holy effort on your part for working continously for the support for ACT and their initiative which is not just only concerning Lepchas but the people of the whole of the state of Sikkim.I have been reading your blog since the begining and have seen that it has got an over whelming response from not only within but across continents.I hope the effort of the concerned citizens would soon bring out a positive outcome.Further i would like to know if it is permissible to use your photograps and articles to share it with people,just to make a little effort to let people know still in darkness.Your early reply would be highly appreciated.
"We are there with you ,members of ACT!"
