‘GNLF’ men shunted out of hills

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 23, 2009

Kalimpong, July 22: Three persons living in villages under Gorubathan block of the Kalimpong subdivision were forced to leave their homes today in the wake of the quit notice issued to them by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha for allegedly hobnobbing with the GNLF.

Bishnuraj Biswakarma, Krishna Rasaily and Sanu Tamang were accused of meeting former GNLF councillor from the area, K.N. Subba, in Siliguri. Subba has been living in Siliguri ever since he was exiled by the Morcha last year.

While Biswakarma left his home in Mission Hill tea garden along with his entire family, Rasaily and Tamang were allowed to leave their families behind. Rasaily and Tamang have been declared persona non grata in the area for three months, during which the Morcha said it will monitor their activities.

“If the two do not indulge in any anti-party activities during the three month period, they would be allowed to return to their villages and join our party,” said Binay Tamang, the assistant secretary of the Morcha.

Tamang said while Biswakarma had not turned up to attend a hearing summoned by the Morcha last weekend, Rasaily and Tamang had showed up. “Both of them admitted that they had met Subba in Siliguri. However, they said the purpose of the meeting was to ask Subba to return the money that they had lent him,” said the Morcha assistant secretary.

On the other hand, Biswakarma’s no-show, he said, was a confirmation of his guilt. Tamang said in the absence of the Biswakarmas, their house will be in the care of the Morcha. “The local unit of the Morcha will protect their property, because, unlike the GNLF, our party believes in Gandhian principles. Had these people indulged in similar anti-party activities during the GNLF time, their houses would have been burned down.”

Apart from the trio, two women of the same area had also been summoned on suspicion that they kept links with the GNLF. “While we recovered GNLF posters, leaflets and CDs from the houses of the three men, nothing of that sort was found in the possession of the two women. However, we will be keeping a close watch on their activities,” he warned.
