The MLAs of Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) joined BJP in presence of its working president JP Nadda and general secretary Ram Madhav in New Delhi at the party's headquarters on Tuesday
Pawan Chamling, a five-term Chief Minister, said everyone needed to stay alert and be aware of "such negative forces".
Chamling’s “invincibility” was put to test on April 11, 2019 when the Himalayan state went for simultaneous Assembly and Lok Sabha polls.
After a very close battle, the SKM reached the magic figure of 17 in the 32-member House, with the SDF lagging behind with 14 seats. The result of the Tumen-Lingie constituency is awaited.
