Evacuation Of 1,200 Tourists Stranded In Sikkim To Begin On Monday

Incessant rain over the past few days triggered landslides in Sikkim, claiming the lives of at least six people and leaving over 1,200 tourists stranded. According to an official, the evacuation of over 1,200 tourists stranded in Sikkim’s Mangan district might is likely to begin on Monday if the weather allows, news agency PTI reported.

“It could not take place during the day due to unfavourable conditions,” an official said.

Chungthang’s Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Kiran Thatal stated that if the weather conditions are favourable, the evacuation process will be carried out through air or road.

He also said that the district administration was taking care of the lodging of the stranded tourists, prividing them accommodation at various hotels in Lachung town. They were also being provided food at a nominal rate.

“In case of any inconvenience, the tourists have been directed to report to the Lachung police station,” the SDM said.

Meanwhile, N B Dahal, Roads & Bridges Department Minister, reached Lachung town and interacted with the tourists to understand their grievances, and also assured them a safe evacuation at the earliest.
