Bhaichung Bhutia's party moves SC seeking removal of 'immigrant' tag from Sikkimese of Nepali origin

Footballer-turned-politician Bhaichung Bhutia has moved the Supreme Court seeking clarification over a 1994 judgement over the word 'immigrant' used for Nepali Sikkimese. Bhutia, who launched his own party Hamro Sikkim earlier this year after moving out of Mamata Banerjee's Trinamool Congress, accused Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Chamling of doing nothing to remove the objectionable word used for the community.
