The minister, in his address, appreciated the efforts of the Paschim Sikkim Sahitya Prakashan in protection and preservation of Nepali language through literary activities. He said literature-based activities help to uplift Nepali language and culture.
Recalling August 20 as a historic day, the minister said it was because of the efforts of the leaders and Indian Nepali community, the Nepali language was included in the eighth schedule of the Constitution. He stressed that literary activities should be organized not only on Bhanu Jayanti or Bhasha Manyata Diwas but regularly so that the new generation gets a platform to work on literature.

The organizing committee felicitated minister S.B. Subedi and MLA Sonam Dadul Bhutia for their contributions towards the society as public representatives.
