Bandh relaxation today

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 27, 2009

KURSEONG, 26 JULY: The GJMM leadership would relax the indefinite shutdown tomorrow to facilitate observance of the Martyrs’ Day.
“Life would be normal from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow. We hope, the people would pay obeisance to the Gorkhaland martyrs who laid down lives in Kalimpong in 1986 for our paramount cause,” said the GJMM general secretary Mr Roshan Giri today.
Notably, the hill-based outfit has given relaxation to the strike on three different occasions for three reasons since it has started on 13 July.
Mr Giri affirmed that the observance being over, the bandh would come into force again and it would continue till their demands were met. “We would relentlessly continue with the shutdown agitation come what may until the inspector general of police, north Bengal Mr KL Tamta is removed from his post,” he said.
Recounting the saga of sacrifice for the statehood cause, Mr Giri said that nearly twelve hundred people had died since the movement was launched in the 1980’s.
“We would not be found wanting if the cause we are striving for would require more sacrifice to near its fruition,” Mr Giri averred.
