Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 22, 2009

DARJEELING, July 21: Two top leaders of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM)-Amar Lama and Anmole Prasad-today flew to New Delhi to prepare the party’s response to the directions of the Supreme Court over the NH 31A issue.
The Supreme Court had yesterday given two weeks time to GJM to submit its reply to the fresh petition filed by OP Bhandari regarding the shut down of the lifeline of Sikkim during the ongoing bandh period.
The GJM general secretary Roshan Giri however blamed the government for delaying in sending the letter for tripartite talks for the indefinite Darjeeling bandh which also affected the NH 31 A.
At the same time, Mr. Giri claimed that the party has not formally received any notice of the Supreme Court over the NH 31 A issue. Once we get the notice, we will make the necessary observations, he said.
Mr. Giri also expressed the party’s satisfaction over the preponement of the tripartite talks to August 11 by the Centre.
Regarding the reports over deputation of paramilitary forces in Darjeeling hills, the GJM general secretary said that no forces can suppress the democratic demand for separate State of Gorkhaland.
Darjeeling SP Rahul Srivastav has informed about the decision to bring 6 companies of CRPF in the hills.
Meanwhile, the indefinite Darjeeling hills bandh resumed yesterday evening after a ten hour breather by GJM.
