Bagdogra, Fri, 09 Apr 2010 ANI

Bagdogra (West Bengal), Apr 9 (ANI): The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief, Bimal Gurung, is scheduled to meet Union Home Minister, P. Chidambaram here today.


Gurung, who is leading the party for the first time, arrived here along with party General Secretary Roshan Giri and leaders Harka Bahadur Chhetri, Amar Lama and Amar Rai


Gurung's visit is significant as he has chosen to stay away from the ongoing tripartite talks to resolve the political impasse in the Darjeeling hills arising from the GJM's demand for a "Gorkhaland" State.


Five rounds of discussions have so far been held.


The Gorkhas have been demanding a separate state, to be carved out of West Bengal, to protect their culture and heritage.


The Gorkha population in West Bengal is estimated to be around a million. (ANI)
