Parties supporting Gorkhaland cause welcome: GJMM

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 8, 2009

KURSEONG, 7 OCT: Celebrating its second foundation day today the GJMM leadership said that it was keeping its doors open to support other national parties if necessary for the sake of Gorkhaland. Speaking on the occasion in Darjeeling today, the GJMM chief Mr Bimal Gurung said the BJP and Darjeeling MP Jaswant Singh had raised voice for Gorkhaland in Parliament. “But if they do not take further initiative on the matter, we would support other national parties in the Centre for the sake of Gorkhaland.”
Incessant rainfall since last night forced the GJMM to minimise the foundation day celebrations. However, traditional and cultural programmes were held in various parts of the hills. The GJMM leadership felicitated its activists and emphasised on their achievements for the past two years. Performers from Nepal and Manipur participated in the cultural programmes. Adivasi performers from the Terai and the Dooars also participated in the show.
