Gorkha Janamukti Morcha Challenges Ghising to Return to Darjeeling


Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) on Sunday dared GNLF supremo Subhas Ghising to return to Darjeeling and said his statement that he could do so whenever he wanted did not carry much weight.
"We dare him to return to Darjeeling with his security men either by road or by helicopter. He will have to cross few thousand women members of Gorkha Narimukti Morcha," GJM president Bimal Gurung told . Ghising's statement to the press about his return and that there was no question of his quitting as the caretaker administrator of Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council till his term ends was made yesterday in Kolkata, where he had the support of the West Bengal government, he said.
Lambasting Ghising for his statement that he could enter Darjeeling whenever he wanted but there should be no clash, Gurung, once a close associate of Ghising, said he should be ashamed as 1200 people were killed during the Gorkhaland agitation in the 1980s.
"But GJM would stick to Gandhigiri (fast-unto-death) and never take the path of terror... The West Bengal government should also not dilly dally and keep in mind that there was a limit to the patience of common men," he said.
GJM's indefinite bandh in the hills demanding Ghising's immediate ouster and separate Gorkhaland state entered the fifth day on Sunday.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
