BJP govt will directly deal with Gorkhaland demand: GJM

DEEP MILAN PRADHAN
MIRIK : Expressing gratitude towards voters a day after the polls, Mirik GJM committee president and GTA sabhashad Phubi Rai said the demand for a separate state of Gorkhaland will be placed “directly before the BJP led government at the Centre”. Expressing confidence of BJP candidate SS Ahluwalia winning, Rai said the newly appointed ‘Member of Parliament’ will stand by his words and fulfill the aspiration of the people. According to the GJM leader, the people will give a taste of defeat to the anti-Gorkhaland forces through the EVMs. Already in an exhilarant mood, Rai said besides the Gorkhas, members of other communities such as the Biharis, Marwaris, Bengalis and others in the hills are also in favour of statehood and they have cast their votes for the BJP candidate. Instead of pursuing the issue through the state assembly, Rai said Ahluwalia would take up the statehood demand at the Centre and the Modi ‘Sarkaar’ will consider it in the most positive of dispositions. Rai admitted votes in the hills may have got divided by some extent this time, but the GJM-backed BJP candidate will undoubtedly emerge victorious.
