The Sikkim government has nominated Bollywood singer Mohit Chauhan as the Green Ambassador of the state for promoting Sikkim as a Green Destination, nationally and internationally, on voluntary basis. He is a playback singer and singer of a band known as ‘Silk Route’. Earlier, the state government had roped in AR Rahman as its official brand ambassador to promote tourism in Sikkim. The tiny Himalayan state of Sikkim is an example of tolerance, compassion, peace, integrity and communal harmony for the rest of the country. The state is known for its rich biodiversity and abundant natural resources due to environment-friendly policies being followed by the state government for more than two decades.
