BB Gooroong refutes report


Gangtok: A report of Sify news, titled “Sikkim political parties back Gorkhaland demand”, said to have been filed from Gangtok on Friday, June 27, 2008, appeared in Google website on the day. Quoting PTI based in Gangtok as the source, the report attributed a statement to Mr. B. B. Gooroong, political advisor to Sikkim chief minister, which has been emphatically refuted by Mr. Gooroong.
The report said, “The ruling Sikkim Democratic Front - has openly supported the creation of a separate Gorkhaland state to fulfil what it says the aspiration of the Gorkha people”, adding, “The demand for creation of a Gorkhaland state is fully justified for the fulfilment of democratic aspirations of the Gorkha people living in the Darjeeling hills and adjoining areas in West Bengal, party leader and former chief minister B B Gurung told PTI here”. When contacted by Sikkim Reporter, Mr. Gooroong said, “I deny having made any such statement”. He further said, “I did not talk to PTI on the matter”. The Sify report also carried what it called a statement by former chief minister and Sikkim Pradesh Congress Committee president Mr. Nar Bahadur Bhandari. “The Gorkhaland demand is also supported by Mr. Bhandari who said Darjeeling hills were never a part of West Bengal historically and the present agitation was a culmination of the discriminatory attitude of the state (West Bengal) government over the years”, according to the report.
“Some political parties like BJP, CPI-M and Sikkim Himali Rajya Parishad have refused to express their stand on the statehood issue”, said the report which also quoted, SHRP president, Dr. A. D. Subba, saying, ‘’The Centre should find out the foreign forces which were behind the agitation on the statehood issue and were encouraging the agitators in all manners”.

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)
