Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 7, 2009

DARJEELING, July 06: Buoyed by the Gorkhaland issue being raised in the Rajya Sabha by BJP leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy, the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) has expressed its hope that other political parties will give similar support.
“Mr. Rudy raised the issue of Gorkhaland in the Rajya Sabha after understanding the importance of the issue raised by GJM. We are hopeful that other parties will also understand our issue”, said GJM general secretary Roshan Giri.
“GJM is committed towards Gorkhaland. Tripartite talks have taken place on this issue and meetings on secretary levels are already done. Now the talks will take place on political levels as already announced by the Union Home Minister P Chidambaram”, said Mr. Giri.
It may be recalled that recently various political parties and organizations had submitted a memorandum to the UPA government for creation of ten new States including Gorkhaland and Telangana. This has provided fresh energy to GJM who will announce its new activities for Gorkhaland movement on July 12.
