How Did Sikkim Become an Indian State?

The monarchy in Sikkim was established in the year 1642. The state was riled by the Chogyal dynasty. Subsequently, in 1890, Sikkim was made a ‘Protectorate State’ under British India.  At the time of India’s independence, in the year 1947, Sikkim entered into a treaty with India, under which the defense, communication, and foreign affairs of Sikkim were decided to be looked after by India, and the independence of Sikkim was retained.

After 28 years of independence, the people of Sikkim revolted against the king there. Of Sikkim’s voters, 97.5 had spoken of going with India in the referendum. As a result of this rebellion, on May 16, 1975, Sikkim was made the 22nd state of India with the status of a special co-state. It was on this day in 1975 that Sikkim had officially become a state under the Union of India and Kazi Lhendup Dorjee became its first chief minister. To celebrate the day, we have for you Sikkim Statehood Day 2021 wishes, greetings, messages, HD images, wallpapers, quotes, Telegram pics & GIFs to celebrate the day:
