ABAVP threatens to ‘paralyse’ Siliguri

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 25, 2009

SILIGURI, 24 JULY: The Terai unit of the Akhil Bharatiya Adivasi Vikas Parishad today threatened to “paralyse” Siliguri if the district administration failed to force the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha to withdraw its bandh programme from certain areas in Siliguri sub-division, which have an admixture of Adivasi population.
The ABAVP served a representation to the Siliguri SDO on the issue today stating it would act if the problem was not resolved by Sunday.
“In addition to the Darjeeling hills, the GJMM has extended its bandh programme to the Tirihanna and Belgachi tea estates under the Naxalbari police station in Siliguri sub-division. The workers of these tea estates are suffering due to the bandh and the administration is doing nothing to sort it out,” said
an ABAVP leader Mr Rajesh Toppo.
According to him, the students of those areas were being victimized by the strike that came into force on 13 July.
“Under the circumstances, the ABVP would block all major roads in the sub-division from Monday if the administration fails to dissuade the GJMM,” he added
