In a historic day for Sikkim, the state’s Chief Minister, Pawan Chamling has just equalized his tenure with that of the former West Bengal Chief Minister Jyoti Basu who had remained in power for 23 years, 4 months and 17 days.
However, this record will be broken by Chamling on the 29th of April, thus becoming the longest serving CM in the whole nation. It may be mentioned that on 4th March, 1993, Pawan Chamling had founded a regional party called the Sikkim Democratic Front which is the ruling party in the state at present.
