Senior BJP leader  Dr Subramanian Swamy had promised to raise the Gorkhaland statehood issue last week when he had been invited by the Morcha leadership in the two days National Seminar on “Small States and Gorkhaland”

GJM (Gorkha Janmukti Morcha) president Bimal Gurung on his official Facebook Page wrote the following.

I am most thankful to Dr. Subramanian Swamy for raising the Gorkhaland issue at the highest level.
The fact that he wrote to the Home Minister to take necessary steps to form “Gorkha Pradesh” shows the significance he has placed on the formation of a separate state for the Gorkhalis in India.

In writing his letter to the Hon’ble Home Minister a day before the 1/1st and 1/3rd Gorkha Rifles complete 200 years service to the nation is reflective of the impeccable as the nation will celebrate our brave Gorkha jawans tomorrow, the Hon’ble Home Minister will be reminded of the need to give justice to the Gorkhas who have waited for 108 years for a state of our own.

I had a telephonic conversation with Dr Subramanian Swamy today where I thanked him whole heartedly for advocating our cause of a seperate state of Gorkhaland.

Dr Swamy told me that he was written to the Hon’ble Home Minister, Shri Rajnath Singh outlining various steps that can be taken towards creation State of “Gorkha Pradesh”. He has sought creation of posts of Addl DGP and Addl Chief Secretary, he told me. He said that the Hon’ble Home Minister was gave a very positive response to the demand.

Dr Swamy also said that he had spoken to Hon’ble Railway Minister, Shri Suresh Prabha and raised the issue of upgrading the Darjeeling Himalayan Railways. Likewise he also drawn the attention of Hon’ble Minister for Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari to the early restoration of NH 55 in Darjeeling and to the Hon’ble Law Minister, Shri D.V Sadananda Gowda for setting up a seperate High Court Bench in Darjeeling as a step to creation of a seperate state.

Even as I expressed my gratitude to Dr Swamy, he assured that he will continue his advocacy of a seperate state for Gorkhas in India.

On behalf of the people of Gorkhaland, I conveyed my gratitude and prayed that he will continue to support our just and fair demand of Gorkhaland State.

Time has come for us to turn the dream of Gorkhaland into a reality, and for that all of us need to work together as a team.”
