Gorkhaland within Mamata’s CM tenure – Bimal Gurung

Sukna : Addressing a massive crowd in Sukna today, the GJM President Bimal Gurung asserted the separate state of Gorkhaland will be formed within Mamata Banergee’s term as the chief minister of West Bengal, but it can only be achieved by supporting Bharatya Janta Party (BJP) in the LS Elections this year.

Over 1 lakh people from every corner of the Darjeeling hills, Terai and Dooars attended the meeting today at the Sukna football ground near Siliguri. The meeting was also attended by BJP’s Darjeeling constituency candidate SS Ahuluwalia, GJM General Secretary Roshan Giri, along with BJP leader and former GLO chief Chattray Subba among others.

Slamming the state government, Gurung said the Mamata government is using ‘Daman Niti’ towards the hill people. He claimed, “Mamata’s government is using police and administration to divide the people of the hills and resorting to pressure tactics to win the election.”

He also alleged the state government for starting manhunt and arresting GJM leaders only because Trinamool did not receive GJM’s support for this year’s election. “The police started issuing arrest warrants against the GJM leaders on the day when we announced our support to BJP,” he pointed out.

Blaming Mamata of failing to bring any development in hills, he said, “Mamata claims she visited the hills 22 times in the last three years, but every time she came here she only cut ribbons but never fulfilled her promise to implement the development projects.”

Gurung also appealed GNLF supremo Subash Ghishing and independent candidate Mahendra P Lama to support BJP if they want to form Gorkhaland and love the people of the hills. He said, “It is the time for the two leaders to think for the Gorkha community and the dreams of 1200 brave people who sacrificed their lives during Gorkhaland movement.”

SS Ahuluwalia in his speech asserted that he will work hard to fulfill all the dreams and aspirations of the people of the hills, especially the formation of Gorkhaland. He said, “Despite playing a vital role in the development of the nation, the Gorkha community has been neglected by both the state and central governments and this has to change.”

He said, “When the nation needs its boarders to be protected the government looks for the services of the brave Gorkha solders. However, when it comes to the issue of their identity in the nation and its demand for a separate state, they are ignored and even humiliated.”

He claimed the BJP will never sideline the demand of Gorkha people and will make sure their demands are met with. He also appealed the people to vote for BJP to realize the dream of having their own state.
