1311 people joins Gorkha Janmukti Morcha in Dooars
Gorkha Janmukti Morcha got a huge GJM boost in Dooars, as 1311 people joined Morcha in the presence of GJM Chief Bimal Gurung.

Attending a special function organized at Tukvar where people from Dooars had some in droves to join Morcha, GJM chief Bimal Gurung shared a dose of pragmatism to those who were in attendance. He said, “there is a silent ploy to divide us into fragments… ploy to ensure that we end up fighting amongst ourselves… we need to avoid all that… it is high time that we all stand united as one family, till we achieve Gorkhaland statehood…”

He further stated, “even before Independence, our region was a hot-bed of politics… but no political party or leader did us any justice… our rights have been trampled upon and we have continued to be discriminated against… no one will come for our rescue, we have to save ourselves… and that won’t happen till we all stand as one and fight for our rights.”

Telling people to be patient he said, “it takes time for good things to happen… I may not be able to fulfill all your demands right away, but that should not be a reason for you all to leave us and join another party… together we have to fulfill our needs and demands, and that is only possible with the formation of Gorkhaland … Now we have to give up our differences and work towards building strong foundations for our next generation.”

Amongst those joining yesterday were members from Rava community as well, who are indigenous to our region, and are considered to be one of the most marginalized communities in Bengal.
