In my valedictory address, I stated that the Supplementary Demands for Grants passed by the House would fulfill the demands and aspirations of the people of Sikkim. The Assembly session was convened in public interest and conveyed by heartfelt gratitude to the Members of the House for passing the Supplementary Demands for Grants.
