Gorkhaland by 2010 if Dec talks fail, warns GJM

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 15, 2009

Siliguri (WB), Sep 14 (PTI) The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, fighting for a separate state in the Darjeeling hills, has warned that it will unilaterally form ‘Gorkhaland’ if the next round of tripartite talks scheduled in December failed to deliver “justice”.

GJM chief Bimal Gurung told a central convention of the ‘Yuba Morcha’, the youth wing, in Darjeeling yesterday that the fourth round of tripartite talks between the Centre, the GJM and the West Bengal government to be held on December 21 were “vital” for the Gorkhas and Gorkhaland.

“In no case Gorkhas will continue to live under West Bengal government,” he said.

Gurung said that the GJM would also raise a special force of 500 youth to be named after ‘Durga Malla’, a Gorkha freedom fighter who was hanged during the British rule in 1944.
