would take “some decision” before GTA election regarding identity - Mamata

Mamata Banerjee in election campaign rally ahead of Lok Sabha elections, in Cooch Behar
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Thursday said she would take “some decision” before the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration polls expected within this year to ensure that “identity” was not a problem for the hill people.
Mamata, who addressed a meeting at the Darjeeling Motor Stand, didn’t elaborate but it’s possible the GTA could be in for an overhaul. “I want the Gorkha identity to be preserved in Darjeeling…. There is this GTA agreement, I didn’t do it, it was done by the earlier (Left) government, I only signed the agreement.”
The agreement, which led to the formation of the GTA that now administers the hill region, had been signed in July 2011.

“After the (parliamentary) elections (and) before the GTA elections, we will try to take some decision… so that identity is not a problem for our Gorkha brothers and sisters,” she said.
