As per sources, the fourteen Councillors had sent a letter to Suva Pradhan on December 4 requesting a special meeting of the board to remove him from the post of the Chairman.

With the death of Ward 16’s Councillor, Barun Bhujel, the reduced strength of the Kalimpong Municipality Board is now 22. As the no-confidence motion was filed by more than 1/3rd of Kalimpong Municipality’s existing Councillors, Chairman Suva Pradhan submitted his resignation today.
