Call Sikkim CM and Prime Minister Office on the precarious situation of the fasting protesters in Sikkim and urge them to act ASAP

Folks, it's now 50 days of fasting for Dawa and Tenzing. Needless to say their health is going down and any more delay will prove dangerous for their well being. To fast for a unprecedented strech like this putting life and internal organs of the body at grave stake takes lots of commitment and Dawa and Tenzing needs all the support you can give.

If you have not done so already, please take up your mobile and call Sikkim CM office (and PMO ) directly and express your grave concern at the callous attitude of the government in face of the highest human sacrifice. Govt of Sikkim needs to act fast and each one of your call can act as a small pressure point to goad the govt into action.

I did the same thing and it took me only couple of minutes to put the points across. More calls are needed to make the Govt of Sikkim act. Please scroll down and you can find the talking points. For your reference they are also below. Also you can refer to Affected Citizens Of Teesta website.

1. Ask the the Sikkim Govt to act ASAP and talk directly to the protesters. This has to be done ASAP consider the precarious situation of the fasting protesters Dawa and Tenzing.
2. Constitute the high level review committee (consisting of experts, tribals and local people) that the protesters are demanding in order to go through the length and breadth of the unprecedented dam mania that is being proposed in Sikkim and rest of North east.
3. The Govt should stop construction, planning, road laying on all the dams that is being planned in Sikkim and do a comprehensive carrying capacity apart from open, honest and participatory environmental impact assessment (EIA).

PMO number: +91-11-23012312 / 23018939
Sikkim CM Office: Phone: 91-3592-202536, 202304, 221122(Residence) / 91-3592-202575(office)

Remember, each and every call counts. If you have not called, please call asap. Each and every call is super important and will let know the officials that you are concerned and aghast at how the Sikkim Govt is behaving in the face of unprecedented human sacrifice.
