“The reason for leaving SDF was to bring about a transformation in the political scenario of the state”, Rai was heard saying to the reporters.

He said that the SDF leadership had not enacted on their voice of bringing positive changes and reforms in the party with changing times and so it is best to leave SDF and form a new party. He said that the date for the launch of the new party would be disclosed very soon.

Rai added that his new party would offer solutions to prevailing issues, along with highlighting the issues related to the common Sikkimese people. He further said that the new party will not be run by a single entity instead it will be a collective decision of the party and the people on how to run it.
