Darjeeling: Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung stated on Tuesday that the protest in Darjeeling will continue as the state government is making a plan to break the harmony of Darjeeling parties.
“There is a conspiracy being hatched to reinstate Sixth Schedule by the state. Some political parties are involved in it. I don’t intend to name them but I can tell that people at the hills will ensure that the attempts to foil the movement of Gorkhas will not be successful,” Gurung stated.
The rallies were headed by GJM at various places of Darjeeling including Kurseong, Mirik and Kalimpong.
Gurung asserted, “We will talk but only on the issue of Gorkhaland. We have received a message from the Centre through MP SS Ahluwalia, but there has to be a right agenda. We will fight for Gorkhaland for months, and years if need be. Agitation will gain momentum. There is no question of backing out.”
GJM Leader Gurung wrote a letter to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh demanding for a CBI investigation into the killing of three GJM workers on June 17 during violence with police officials. Gurung even added that, he doesn’t have faith in the probe by the state government.
