CPM demands ban on Gorkhaland Personnel

Posted by Ramesh Khati on October 10, 2009

SILIGURI, 9 OCT: The CPI-M today demanded a ban on the Gorkhaland Personnel ~ a voluntary force raised by the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha. The CPI-M Darjeeling district leadership, after a mass convention in Siliguri tomorrow, would write to the state home secretary, demanding ban on the GLP.
“We would send a letter, along with photographs of GLP activities, to the home secretary and request him to take necessary action to ban the outfit,” the state municipal affairs and urban development minister, Mr Asok Bhattacharya said today while speaking on the GJMM’s diktat on dress code. The GJMM recently decreed that students and teachers would have to wear traditional dress in colleges thrice a week and GLP personnel would be posted in colleges to check the matter. Mr Bhattacharya today held a review meeting of the Siliguri Jalpaiguri Development Authority. The SJDA would publish a booklet on the controversial Kawakhali land deal soon, said Mr Bhattacharya. The minister rejected the Trinamul’s claim of alleged corruption in the land deal. “The booklet would contain all details of the deal,” said Mr Bhattacharya.
The minister today also appealed to the Siliguri Municipal Corporation Mayor Miss Gangotri Datta to organise a training programme for the new SMC councillors. “I met her for the first time today after she was elected as the SMC Mayor. I have requested her to organise a training programme to inform the new councillors of the rules and Acts. I would extend all help for the purpose,” Mr Bhattacharya said.
