GJM announces 10-hour recess in indefinite bandh on Monday

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 20, 2009

SILIGURI(PTI): Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) on Sunday announced a 10-hour recess in the ongoing indefinite bandh
in Darjeeling hills from 8.00 AM Monday.

The GJM press secretary, Benoy Tamang, said over phone that the decision was taken to help outstation students reach their schools and colleges as all educational institutions were exempted from bandh from tomorrow.

This would also help residential school managements and the hill people in general to store essentials for the hostels and private houses as well, Tamang said.

All tea gardens and cinchona plantation were also given the ‘relaxation’ and kept out of the purview of the bandh from tomorrow, he said.

When asked whether GJM had allowed 10-hour recess in the bandh tomorrow following Centre’s decision advancing the date of third round of tripartite talks from August 24 to August 11, Tamang said, “not at all. The decision of recess has no connection with the Centre’s reschedule of talks.”

Tamang said the Centre did not re-scheduled the date for talks as per GJM’s demand which asked for any date within this month.
