The resolution was welcomed by MLAs from both SDF and SKM and passed by the House unanimously.
“Our government has been very sincere in pursuing the matter in bringing the Karmapa to Rumtek monastery. It is very unfortunate that the Karmapa issue has been politicized in Sikkim time and again,” said Rai.

I welcome the resolution brought by SDF MLA B.B. Rai on bringing the Karmapa to Sikkim, said Golay.
