Earlier Sikkim CM Prem Singh Tamang Golay had decided to create a separate departe for govt employees who are nonperformers or are creating obstacles for others.

Taking a sarcastic dig at non-performers, CM Tamang said that those who have no focus on work also end up creating obstacles for others and hence need to be put elsewhere.

Those who shall be put in the separate department shall not be entitled to any perks apart from their salaries, CM Golay had announced.
