BJP appoints new Sikkim unit chief, after DB Chauhan quits citing indifference

NEW DELHI: The BJP on Saturday appointed D R Thapa as its Sikkim unit president, weeks after his predecessor D B Chauhan quit alleging “indifference” from the central leadership towards the state organisation.

BJP national president J P Nadda also appointed N K Subba its legislative party leader and made D T Lepcha, an MLA, a “special invitee” to the national executive committee, a statement said.

The BJP’s move to put its house in order in Sikkim comes as the party gears up for polls in the northeastern state next year.
