Two held for attacking a chef and his friends from Darjeeling, one on the run
Three men from Kotla Mubarakpur allegedly thrashed a chef from Darjeeling and his friends with a wooden plank following a spat during the early hours of Tuesday in the south Delhi locality.
Police ruled out that this was hate crime and said the fight the fight was the result of the three men mistaking that Pradhan and his friends were speaking in English about them.
Friends of the chef, Pranay Pradhan, who works as a chef at a restaurant in Khan Market, said they were speaking among themselves in English and the three assailants thought they were making fun of them and picked up a fight. Police have arrested two of the assailants.
The incident took place around 2.30am when Pradhan and his friends Nitesh Shankar, who also works at the same restaurant, Ganesh, Laxmi and Leena Subba, were returning home after attending a birthday party. Police said Pradhan, Shankar, Ganesh and Laxmi belong to Darjeeling, while Subba hails from Nepal.
A senior police officer, who did not wish to be named, said police received call at 2.32am reporting a quarrel near Subhash Gali in Kotla Mubarakpur. He said when a team from the police station arrived at the spot, it found that two men who sustained injuries have been rushed to Safdarjung Hospital.
Police said at the hospital they found that Pradhan was still unconscious. “Shankar gave a statement that around 2.15am they were returning home after attending a birthday party. Soon as they entered Subhash Gali crossing, the three men, who were sitting there, asked them to leave the place quickly. On this, they had an argument and the trio allegedly started using obscene language. He alleged that the spat soon turned violent and the two women who were with them fell down,” the officer said.
In a video that surfaced on social media, Pradhan’s friend Ganesh alleged that the three men were drunk. He said the three men thought he and his friends were making fun of them and picked up a fight. Police, quoting Pradhan’s friends, said while two of the three men overpowered Pradhan during the fight, their third hit him on his head with a wooden plank.
Deputy commissioner of police (south) Vijay Kumar said soon as the police were informed, they registered a case of attempt to murder and assault and teams were rushed to the spot to arrest the culprits. “Two men, Yogesh alias Judi (19) and Saurav (23), were arrested. Both are residents of the same neighbourhood and admitted to having attacked Pradhan. Efforts to arrest the third man, Vishal, are underway and the case is being probed,” the DCP said.

Adverse weather has put Rs 400 crore worth travel trade in Darjeeling Sikkim hills under crisis
Adverse geological condition, heavy rain or disrupted communication, all put together have submerged tourism trade in eastern Himalayan hotspot Darjeeling and Sikkim hills under uncertainty. Annual travel trade of around Rs 400 crore is a major contributor to the local economy of the industrially backward region.

“Overall situation here has become nightmare for entire tourism arena,” said Samrat Sanyal, Secretary, Himalayan Hospitality & Tourism Development Network.

Following 35% higher than normal rainfall during last week, Sikkim had 52% higher rainfall on the 14th June. The figure recorded for entire Sikkim and Sub Himalayan West Bengal for the same day is staggering 189%.

Eventually, almost all the hilly roads towards Sikkim or Darjeeling have gone under the mercy of Mother Nature. Countless number of landslides have heavily fragmented NH 10 to Sikkim and Darjeeling bound NH 110. Making things even worse, both the roads have become death trap due to heavy flow of muddy water. Already lives of many local people and tourists have gone into the steep gorges or turbulent rivers.

“Heavy rain and high current in rivers have become deep challenges for rescue operations,” said a senior disaster management official. He was searching out the tourists those went missing after their vehicle toppled down to turbulent river Teesta on the 10th. Dead body of only one of them was found so far from a place around 15 km in downstream.

“On an average 50,000 foreign and 5 lakh domestic tourists visit Darjeeling Sikkim region per annum. Near 15 to 20% of them visit in Monsoon forming noticeable portion of the annual business of around Rs 400 crore,” said Raj Basu, tourism advisor to Sikkim Government.

Adding to this, Sanyal said, “After the end of summer rush by July, August gives bulk business from corporate sector as hotel and airlines tariff becomes very friendly during monsoon. But, we had to accept many cancellations of Aug-Sep bookings,” he informed.

Needless to say, none can do anything against Mother Nature. But, “A long term management system to negotiate the critical road condition needs to be developed,” he demanded.

However, West Bengal Tourism Minister Gautam Deb has assured all possible support to anyone in need.

Heritage Darjeeling Toy Train
Unesco has reprimanded the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) and warned of revoking the heritage tag to the 140-year-old hill railway in West Bengal over poor upkeep, DHR officials said on Monday.
In a strongly-worded letter sent to the DHR recently, Unesco said that the Indian Railways had failed to inform it of the poor upkeep of the facilities of the heritage railway between 2017 and 2019 and waste being dumped on the its tracks, they said.
DHR officials have blamed recurring landslides through the year for the damage to the tracks of narrow gauge railway.
The landslips are the main obstacle in regular running of the DHR trains as repairing takes time, the officials said.
The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR), which manages the DHR, has also blamed the people residing along the tracks for the presence of the waste.
"Residents of houses along the route sit on the DHR tracks and park vehicles on them obstructing the way of the trains," NFR General Manager Sanjiv Ray said.
"We follow all procedures to keep the heritage tag intact. We hold regular meetings and keep a close contact with the Unesco authorities," he added.
Unesco had included the 140-year old DHR in the list of World Heritage Monuments in December 1999. However, it can revoke the tag if it deems that the heritage site is not being properly maintained.
The UN body had in the past expressed concerns over the degradation of the Himalayan railway.

Neeraj Zimba BJP MLA Darjeeling
गोरामुमोको केन्द्रीय समिति पुनर्गठन

लगभग 1 वर्षपछि गोर्खा राष्ट्रिय मुक्ति मोर्चाको केन्द्रिय समितिको पुनर्गठन भयो। लगभग 1 वर्षअघि गोरामुमो अध्यक्ष मन घिसिङको निर्देशअनुसार, गोरामुमो केन्द्रिय समितिसँगै सबै भ्रातृ संगठनहरूलाई विघटन गरिएको थियो। आज गठन गरिएको गोरामुमो केन्द्रिय समितिमा 43 जना सदस्य मनोनित गरिएको आज मनोनित भएका गोरामुमो केन्द्रिय समितिका सह-प्रवक्ता अजय एड्वर्डले जानकारी गराएका छन्।
यसैबीच, गोरामुमो दार्जीलिङ शाखा समिति, खरसाङ शाखा समितिको गठन हुनका साथै विभिन्न पदाधिकारीहरूको पनि चयन गरियो। यसका साथै अजय एड्वर्डलाई गोरामुमो दार्जीलिङ शाखा समितिका अध्यक्ष बनाइएको छ भने खरसाङ शाखाका अध्यक्ष निमा लामालाई बनाइएको पनि उनले जानकारी गराएका छन्।
GNLF central committe reformed
पार्टी अध्यक्ष मन घिसिङले आगामी 15 दिनभित्र शाखा समितिहरूलाई पुनर्गठन गर्ने निर्देश दिएको पनि उनले जनाए। उनले भने-गोरामुमो दार्जीलिङ शाखा समितिको पुनर्गठनपछि शाखा समितिले दार्जीलिङमा एक जनसभाको आयोजना गर्ने योजना बनाएको छ। किनभने, गत लोकसभा र विधानसभाको उपचुनाउमा जीत हासिल गरेर पनि अहिलेसम्म गोरामुमो वा भाजपाले एउटा जनसभा पनि गर्न सकेको छैन। यसैकारण गोरामुमो दार्जीलिङ शाखाको पुनर्गठन भएपछि एक जनसभा गर्ने योजना बनाइएको छ।
यसैबीच, एक प्रश्‍नको उत्तरमा एड्वर्डले भने-गोरामुमोले भाजपासित गठबन्धन गर्नुको एउटै मूल कारण स्थायी राजनैतिक समाधान हो। स्थायी राजनैतिक समाधान अलग राज्य गोर्खाल्यान्ड हो, यसैले दार्जीलिङ पहाडको लागि स्थायी राजनैतिक समाधान नभएसम्म यो गठबन्धन जारी रहनेछ। तर स्थायी राजनैतिक समाधान छैटौं अनुसूचीभन्दा ठूलो हुनपर्छ, यो गोरामुमोको स्पष्ट अडान हो। यसमाथि संसदमा आवाज उठाउनको लागि गोरामुमोले दार्जीलिङका सांसद राजु विष्टलाई पत्र पठाउने तय गरेको पनि उनले बताए।

यसैबीच, भाजपाका पश्‍चिम बंगाल प्रदेश अध्यक्ष एवं सांसद दिलीप घोषले गोर्खाल्यान्डको विरोधमा दिएको बयानबारे दार्जीलिङका विधायक निरज जिम्बाले गोर्खाल्यान्डको विरोध गर्नु भाजपाका प्रदेश अध्यक्ष दिलीप घोषको राजनैतिक बाध्यता हो भन्ने बताएका छन्। उनले भने-बंगालको कुनै पनि नेताले गोर्खाल्यान्ड हुनसक्छ, गोर्खाल्यान्ड दिनुपर्छ भन्न सक्तैन। तर यो भाजपाको केन्द्रिय समितिले लिने निर्णयको कुरा हो। जसले आफ्नो चुनावी घोषणा पत्रमा गोर्खा जातिको लागि स्थायी राजनैतिक समाधानको कुरा उल्लेख गरेको छ। यस विषय लिएर सांसद राजु विष्ट दार्जीलिङ आएपछि उनीसित एक बैठक गर्ने योजना बनाएको पनि उनले जनाए।

GNLF leader JB Tamang Joins GJMM
JB. Tamang, the working president of the Gorkha National Liberation Front’s tea trade union, on Sunday joined the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s Binay Tamang camp, blaming the BJP’s alleged “expansion plan” in the Darjeeling hills and the silence of the GNLF leadership on the issue.
He also spoke of “a realisation” that the BJP would not work for the hills.
Tamang is also the hill convener of the Joint Forum, a conglomeration of 26 tea trade unions, except those of the Trinamul Congress and the Binay faction of the Morcha.
“I talked to Raju Bistaji (Darjeeling MP) about minimum wages (for tea garden workers) but I was told that (Narendra) Modiji had directed them to enroll 2 lakh members in the hills. They have won the election and what is the need for membership drive?” Tamang asked.

The Himalayan Plantation Workers’ Union leader also alleged that the GNLF leadership was silent on the BJP membership issue.
“The tea gardens are in the doldrums, wages are not being paid, gratuity is not being paid, nor is provident funds, Peshok, Dooteriya are closed….both the winning and losing parties had talked about minimum wages and land rights,” said Tamang who had raised these issues against the Binay camp during the earlier election campaign.
Tamang alleged that the Darjeeling MP was not under the control of the alliance. “We were only used during the elections. During the elections, Raju Bista had talked about Gorkhaland from Chowrasta but where is this issue?”
The leader stressed that he had joined the Morcha to strengthen “workers’ voice” and added that the demand for minimum wages and land rights could be achieved by working with the Bengal government and the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration.
Tamang was most critical of the Binay Tamang camp during the Lok Sabha elections and the bypoll to the Darjeeling Assembly seat.
The GNLF has lashed out at Tamang.
“Raju Bista raised the issue of minimum wages in the Lok Sabha recently. We feel Tamang had made up his mind to join the Morcha about three to four weeks ago,” said Ajoy Edwards, a GNLF leader.
Bista termed Tamang’s justification to join the “TMC B team” as “surprising and absurd”.
Bista said he had raised the issue of minimum wages, land rights and the overhaul of the plantation labour act in Parliament.
