GJM welcomes talks with WB govt

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 24, 2009

Kolkata, July 23 (PTI) The Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha today welcomed the West Bengal government’s willingness to discuss the Gorkhaland issue.

“They, in a letter, requested us to withdraw the bandh.

They have also said that they are ready to discuss Gorkhaland.

We welcome it. It is a positive development,” GJM General Secretary, Roshan Giri, told PTI from Darjeeling over phone.

He said that things were moving in the right direction after the state government’s response to GJM’s terms for holding the third round of tripartite talks.

Giri said that it was also a welcome gesture that the Centre had preponed the tripartite talks to August 11 from August 24.

GJM had been insisting on political level talks on a separate state of Gorkhaland, after two earlier round of the tripartite meetings were held at the secretary level.
