Bimal gurung land right word in kalimpong

Bimal Gurung in kalimpong
Gorkha Janmukti Morcha president Bimal Gurung today said if his party came to power in the Kalimpong municipality, the first task of the new board would be to grant land rights to the residents.
Gurung only mentioned wards 1 and 11, but residents of many other wards, too, do not have ownership of their lands. Many parts of the wards 1 and 12 belong to the Darjeeling Improvement (DI) Fund, which is administered by the state government.
"I am aware of the problem of the area (ward 1). I have to give them parcha-patta (land rights). My first board meeting will pass a resolution on this...The situation in ward 11 is very bad. I have seen it for myself and feel very sad. I will solve the problem of all the houses of that area which do not have parcha-patta. There is no need to worry," said Gurung while addressing the last election meeting of the party at the Mela Ground here.
Kalimpong municipality goes to the polls on Sunday.

Experts, however, wondered how the Morcha president was going to keep his promise when the DI Fund is under the land and land reforms department of the state government, and is yet to be transferred to the GTA.
At the start of the Morcha meeting, the Trinamul Congress candidate of ward 1, Pawan Sundas, joined the Morcha. He was welcomed to the party by a smiling Gurung.
However, by the end of the meeting, the smile gave way to anger as Gurung got annoyed at the blaring of the mikes of another election meeting being held by rival Jana Andolan Party (JAP) a stone's throw away at Tricone Park.
Even as he was coming to the end of his speech, Gurung got distracted by the blaring mikes and thundered: "This is the failure of the state's law and order machinery. This needs to be understood...It is not right to dominate us in this manner at our own place. Let the Bengal government be warned. Bimal Gurung will face any obstacles put on his way."
Gurung then asked his supporters to take out an impromptu rally from Mela Ground to the town. Excited Morcha supporters marched towards the town shouting slogans, but were stopped by the police at the Main Road, a few metres short of Tricone Park where the JAP supporters had gathered.
The Morcha president later told reporters that the administration should not have allowed the JAP supporters to take out a rally near the venue of the Morcha meeting.
"This appears to be a conspiracy of the state government to start a fight between us and JAP supporters. This should also be understood by JAP," he said.(TT)
