New Delhi:Former Intelligence Bureau (IB) chief P C Haldar is likely to be appointed as the interlocutor to carry forward the talks between the Union Government, the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) and the West Bengal government over the Gorkhaland issue.

The Centre had announced the appointment of an interlocutor on August 11, during the third-round of tripartite talks. Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) officials said Home Minister P Chidambaram will shortly announce the name of the interlocutor. A few other retired bureaucrats are learnt to be in the running for the job.

Sources said the GJM is oppossed to Haldar’s appointment because of his Bengali background. All parties to the talks need to agree on the name of the interlocutor.
