GNLF Chief Subash Ghising to announce party strategy shortly

Kurseong : Gorkha National Liberation Front supremo Subash Ghising will soon be announcing his party’s strategy in terms of moving ahead with its demand. According to a close aide of the GNLF chief, Ghising will announce programmes planed by the party within a few days. The GNLF has been demanding the Sixth Schedule status for the hills and is also seeking restoration of the DGHC in place of the currently functioning GTA. Requesting anonymity, the aide said Ghising was “busy studying books” due to which he could not cast his vote. Proffering further reasons for Ghising’s absence from voting, he said, “It may also be because the party has already extended its support to TMC candidate Bhaichung Bhutia, and he thought it wasn’t necessary for him to go to cast his vote.” However, the person said the actual reason could be revealed by Ghising himself in a few days.

The aide also said the party chief has already announced that the GNLF’s programmes and strategies will be chalked out after the LS polls, and added things will go as per plans. He said the party will soon hold meetings and finalise on the ways to press its demand further. The party leadership has also decided to meet representatives of the state and central governments and hold talks on its agenda, according to the aide. On the other hand, some GNLF sources believe there isn’t any major reason behind Ghising’s decision not to cast his vote. They said the septuagenarian leader must be physically tired due to health complications and hence must have decided against turning up at the polling booth on Thursday. But the GJM has grabbed the opportunity and lashed out at Ghising calling him a betrayer of his own supporters. GJM leaders said Ghising first called on his party rank and file to vote for Bhaichung, but himself refrained from voting as he understands well enough the TMC candidate is heading for a defeat. They added Ghising has always been a leader who never thinks twice before betraying his supporters.
