On December 20 last year, ruling Sikkim Krantikari Morcha’s (SKM) leader Dr Shiva Kumar Sharma and Namchi District SDF president C L Gurung quit their respective parties.

Namchi District SDF president C L Gurung also resigned from SDF after being with the party for 30 years. In his resignation letter, Gurung said that he is resigning from the Namchi SDF District President position and from the primary membership of the party due to personal reasons.
