A few senior leaders along with other several members from Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) joined Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) on March 3.
SDF's leaders such as former Minister GM Gurung, CB Karki, and MLA Chandra Maya Subba along with hundreds of members from opposition parties joined the ruling SKM in the presence of Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang.
They joined SKM during the concluding event of the party's public outreach program 'Ghar Dailo Abhiyan' held at Rangpo in Sikkim.
On March 2, at least 21 senior leaders of SDF in the Himalayan state had resigned, inflicting the party a major blow. Among those who left the SDF was Chandra M Subba, a former Sikkim MLA.
