GTA agreement confirmed Seeds of Bifurcation of Darjeeling – Enos Das Pradhan

The BGP ( Bharatia Gorkha Parisangh)  president Enos Das Pradhan on the bifurcation Siliguri from Darjeeling district said that with the GTA ( Gorkhaland Territorial Administration) settlement the separation was on the card.

The seed of separation was not shown in 1988, it was rather confirmed in 1988 and reconfirmed when GTA agreement was signed in 2011. GJM further fueled this exercise by demanding only Gorkha dominated areas in Siliguri, Dooars and Terai. Darjeeling District, Terai and Doors are the integral part of our proposed separate state of Gorkhaland. The process of separating Siliguri from the mainline of Darjeeling District was initiated long back by late Siddartha Shankar Ray, who created an useless body like Hill Development Council in connivance with the local leaders, then.

When Gorkha chelis were dancing with Alluwalia the other day in Chowrasta it reminded me of the scene when our chellis were dancing with Siddartha and Maya. Since then all District level offices were shifted to Siliguri. Darjeeling slowly lost the character of the district headquarter and there was no voice raised. The process of formation of the separate state of Gorkhaland must therefore begin now and we cannot afford to wait till 2017. Separation of Siliguri from Darjeeling District is an hidden agenda of the BJP to say no to Gorkhaland. We must ask BJP and the party who supported BJP during the last Lok Sabha election to explain their intention. Are they serious and sincere about our demand of separate state of Gorkhaland?
