After a massive rally held to request the Union government to allow Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje to visit Sikkim, a relay hunger strike is in process at BL House, Tibet Road demanding the Karmapa to be allowed to visit Sikkim.
Sikkim Bhutia Lepcha Apex Committee (SIBLAC) convener Tseten Tashi Bhutia along with sixteen other monks are on strike. Thousands of monks and devotees had taken to the streets demanding Karmapa be allowed to visit the state on Drukpa Tseshi to be held on August 6. The Denzong Lhadey, a body of monks has meanwhile warned that if the Indian government fails to grant the same, all monks and devotees of the state may be forced to launch a “democratic agitation” and has warned that the government shall be solely responsible for any consequence that may arise out of any future course of action.
