Territorial status achieved for Gorkhaland now: Roshan Giri

Bagdogra, Sun, 10 Jul 2011 ANI

Bagdogra (West Bengal), July 10 (ANI): Gorkhaland Jana Mukti Morcha (GJMM) General Secretary Roshan Giri has said that territorial status has been identified and achieved for Gorkhaland presently.


Giri told this to mediapersons on Saturday on his return from Kolkata, where he met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to discuss various aspects of Gorkhaland.


He stated that the meeting had been positive, as Gorkhaland had achieved the territorial status for the time being.


He also noted that GJMM would not only cater to the development of the local Nepali populous, but also all other communities, which coexist with them.


"So now its name will be Gorkhaland Territorial Administration and it will be a powerful body. Our main agenda is to have the areas of Siliguri, Terai and the Dooars and also the areas of the Adivasis (tribals) and also of the ones that are inhabited by the Biharis, Bengalis and the Rajbonshis. We want a compact area made out from all these. So this is it," he said.


Giri further said a tripartite talk would be held with the state government to finalise the agreement within the next ten days.


He said the GJMM had not given up on the idea of a separate Gorkhaland state and said that the territorial status was taken up because the present situation demanded it.


"Our demand for Gorkhaland is in its own place. Right now our main aim is to build infrastructure and territorial demarcation," he added.


The GJMM is the forum spearheading the movement for a separate state of Gorkhaland to be carved out of the northern hilly areas of West Bengal. (ANI)
