“The people of the hills have supported that party that will help them form a separate state of Gorkhaland. Come Friday, this will be clear and we will witness a landslide victory,” claimed Waiba.

He said the GJM leadership has decided to start conducting meetings once the election results are out and discuss strategies that are to be taken up going forward in terms of the statehood demand. The process will start with the demand for tribal status for 10 hill-based communities.

“The statehood movement this time will be taken directly to Delhi once a new government is formed at the Centre,” remarked the GJM leader.

Commenting on the three-tier panchayat election the GJM is demanding, Waiba said this system can be implemented only after making a few amendments to the constitutional setup of the hill administration. He added the party leadership will also conduct a meeting before deciding on the two-tier panchayat election being proposed.

Waiba further said the GJM’s zonal and area units will now work closely and collaborate in development and political activities in order to galvanise the masses to walk on the path towards statehood. The party will also reshuffle its leadership across its various units across the hills to bring in new ideas and increase efficiency, he added.
