GNLF TUNED TOWARDS GORKHALAND

Deepak GurungDarjeeling, December 09: The GNLF has tuned itself to start an agitation for Gorkhaland state if there are more delays in granting Sixth Schedule status to the Darjeeling hills.
The GNLF put pressure the Centre and the West Bengal government for fast execution of the Sixth Schedule bill in parliament.
The bill was shelved after BJP members demanded that it be referred to a parliamentary committee.
"The report will probably take a month to compile. However, if there is further delay and the bill is not passed in the budget session (starting February), we will demand Gorkhaland," Deepak Gurung, president, GNLF Darjeeling Branch Committee responded
