Talking to scribes, Tseten Lepcha, Chief Coordinator, ACT said, “ACT repose full faith and direct interaction by the chief minister to look into the demands and to restore the stalemate.”
However, in the event of their meeting with the chief minister, the ACT will place the primary demands as stated in the December 2006 memorandum.
It may be recalled here that the December 2006 memorandum has demanded for scrapping of all the hydro electric power projects from North Sikkim as well as reviewing of all the hydro-electric power projects in Sikkim.
ACT further says that they will be accepting the review committee only if the request for suspension of all activities, particularly land acquisition and other works relating to hydro electric projects in north Sikkim are suspended till the review committee submits its recommendation.
Meanwhile, ACT has condemned all allegations made against them by some organizations who branded them as anti-socials and anti-nationals. ACT also stated that they have never indulged in such activities adding that activities of a political organization are beyond their purview.
Though ACT has requested political parties to help them in their fight against the hydro power projects in the state, the chief coordinator said that any acts of a political party cannot be attributed to them. “Whatever they do is beyond our knowledge and cannot be helped,” he further said.
