A protest was witnessed on Jantar Mantar to raise grievances against the brutality resorted by the suspected outlawed NDFB (National Democratic Front of Bodoland) cadres towards the innocent Gorkhas of Bhimajuli village, Sonitpur District, Assam. .


According to various sources, it was on 4th October, 2009 some miscreants belonging to the NDFB indiscriminately fired upon the innocent villagers of Bhimajuli, Sonitpur district killing 13 People, of whom eight belonged to the Gorkha community.


Slogans like “stop the inhuman atrocities meted towards the Gorkhas across the country” and “protect the ethnic Gorkhas of Assam” marred the venue.


Central committee leaders of GJMM – Amar Lama, Benoy Tamang, Swaraj Thapa followed by GJMM Delhi/NCR unit leaders– President, Ashok Kumar Biswa,  Treasurer, Uttam Kumar Chhetri, GJMM Nari Morcha Delhi Convenor, Smt. Asha Matinda, GJMM Yuva Morcha Delhi leaders – Hemant Rasaily and Shankar Rai. President of Gorkha Shaheed Sewa Samitee- Andrew Gurung, Gorkha historian- Jyoti Thapa Mani, Member of planning commission – M.S Bisht raised their grievances against the dastardly act meted out the to the ethnic Gorkhas and rest of the victims of  Bhimajuli village, Sonitpur District, Assam. Hordes of people thronged in to make their voices heard, condemning the dastardly act.


The protestors urged the Central Govt. for a high-level enquiry over the incident and also compensate the family of those killed.  GJMM  Delhi unit has also resolved to hand over a memorandum with immediate effect to the Hon’ble Prime minister of India, Hon’ble union minister for home affairs, Chief minister of Assam, Human rights Commission, Leader of opposition and  Governor of Assam.

Gorkha Janmukti Morcha- a political party spearheading the campaign for a separate state of Gorkhaland within the Indian union has been resorting to such protests

concerning the issues related to Gorkhas and the people at large.

    Ne Gorkhas .

    we should be vigilant enough against such dastardly act.
    But i ponder Ne gorkhas outside ne are not organised enough to
    have mass protests as that done by manipuris and tibetans

  2. wilson gurung said

    Thats nice of gorkhas to unite against such act

  3. Time to get united before its too late. Gorkhas from all parts of the country should pressurize the Central and the State Govt. to take drastic action against the NDFB (Declare war against them, no cease fire), a terrorist organisation in the NE . Moreover, compensation will not help the bereaved family, JUSTICE is all they need.
