GJM spurns Centre’s talks offer, wants Buddha, PC on table

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 16, 2009

Kolkata:Snubbing the Centre’s offer of holding the third round of tripartite talks on August 24 in Delhi, the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha said further talks should be held at the political level, and should be “fruitful”.

On Wednesday, the Union home secretary had requested the GJM to call off the ongoing indefinite bandh. The two rounds of talks held in September and December last year involved the Union home secretary and the Bengal chief secretary, besides the Morcha representatives.

“We don’t want secretary-level talks anymore. We have received a letter specifying the date for the next round of talks. The dialogue henceforth should be political and involve the West Bengal Chief Minister and the Union Home Minister. We feel the secretary-level talks have not produced any favourable results,” senior GJM leader Amar Lama said, adding that general secretary Roshan Giri and leader Harka Bahadur Chettri were in Delhi and would likely be meeting Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday.
