The chief minister Mamata Banerjee’s frequent visit to Darjeeling hills and her promises could not soothe the hills, as GJM now gears up for a nationwide movement for the separate state of Gorkhaland.
The GJM leaders, after the Hills, are now busy convincing workers of the tea gardens in Terai belt that their party’s ultimate goal is to achieve Gorkhaland and will march to Delhi to make their movement highlighted nationwide.
Tshering Dahal who recently joined GJM from GNLF said, “I have changed the flag but not the issue, I have dreamt about the Gorkhaland and will fight till my death. I have also joined GJM after seeing that they have not yet dropped the Gorkhaland demand even after signing of GTA agreement.”
Dahal was speaking in a public meeting at Panighata Tea Estate here, where she appealed the tea garden workers to lend support for the cause of Adivashi and Gorkha community.
Harihar Acharya, central committee member and in-charge of Terai and Dooars of Darjeeling Terai Dooars Plantation Labour Union (DTDPLU) said there are three political parties active in hill. “The GNLF is demanding for the sixth schedule and its leaders have already dropped the Gorkhaland demand. Trinamool Congress is against the formation of separate state. So the only faithful political party is the GJM, which is still fighting for Gorkhaland and has not sidelined the demand,” Acharya explained.
GJM’s movement will begin with a demonstration at Jantar Mantar on December 18 and 19, where thousands of GJM leaders and supporters are expected to take part.
