Ghising to quit in ten days

Kolkata: The caretaker administrator of the Darjeeling Hill Council Subhas Ghising has sought ten days time from the West Bengal government to step down from the post which he has been holding for last 20 years, chief of agitating Gorkha Janamukti Morcha said on Friday.
“We have won,” President of GJMM Bimal Gurung told reporters after meeting West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee here. The Chief Minister, he said, had told him that after ten days as sought by Ghising, the GNLF chief, who has ruled the Darjeeling hills with an iron hand for 20 years, would be made to step down in case he did not resign from the post. Gurung said that Ghising sought 10 days time to remove his personal belongings from the premises of the Hill Council. Speaking about the bill on the 6th Schedule to give certain special powers to the Council, Gurung said that the Parliamentary Standing Committee had referred it back to the Union Home ministry. “It has been thrown into the dustbin. It will not be passed without our approval,” Gurung said. About the indefinite bandh in the Darjeeling hills, he said that the GJMM would take a decision on it shortly. The Chief Minister, when asked about reports that Ghising who was in Delhi had resigned, said he did not have any information on them. (Agencies)

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)
