The swearing-in ceremony of PS Tamang as Sikkim chief minister was deferred by a day and the SKM supremo will now take oath for the second term on June 10, party leaders said on Friday.
    
The decision to defer the swearing-in ceremony to June 10 was taken during the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) legislature party meeting, held earlier in the day at the chief minister's official residence, Mintokgang, as Tamang will visit Delhi on Sunday to attend the oath-taking ceremony of Narendra Modi as prime minister for the third time, they said.
    
Tamang is likely to leave for New Delhi on Saturday, an SKM leader said.
    
"Tamang and his council of ministers will now take oath on June 10 at Paljor stadium," another party leader said.

He expressed his gratitude towards the people of Sikkim for giving opportunity to him and the SKM to serve the state once again.
    
In the recently concluded Sikkim assembly and parliamentary polls, the ruling SKM secured a landslide victory, winning 31 of the 32 seats, while its candidate Indra Hang Subba retained the lone Lok Sabha constituency with a thumping margin.
