Bimal Gurung appeals Gorkhas of Uttarakhand to vote for BJP

Dehradun : The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha chief Bimal Gurung gave a clarion call to the Gorkha population of Uttarakhand to support BJP to “make a difference for the existing state of the community in the county”. He made the call while speaking at a meeting in Haridwar, where a large number of Gorkha people were in attendance.Addressing the meeting Gurung said the Gorkhas of Uttarakhand should be united so that they can gain more importance in the national socio-political map. “The Gorkhas living here should be proud of our language and culture. We should always strive to promote our language and culture to ensure brotherhood within the community,” he stated.

The GJM chief further said, “The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha would organise linguistic and cultural camps for the young Gorkha generation this winter here. The Gorkhas of Uttarakhand should not only remember Shahid Durga Malla in words merely. If his legacy is to be taken forward then a new leadership is to be created in the centre, for this the Gorkhas living in the country must unite.” Showing firm confidence on the saffron party, Gurung said, “The GJM will take up all the grievances faced by the Gorkha people in Uttarakhand including the issue of domicile and reservation with the BJP central leadership once the BJP government comes to power at the centre.”

According to Gurung, the BJP was the only national party which has actively voiced the cause of the Gorkhas and so he appealed to all the Gorkhas living in Hardiwar, Roorkee and Dehradun to vote for the BJP and help Narendra Modi become the next prime minister. He further said this was his fourth visit to the state. The first time he had come to the state was to meet the then chief minister BC Khanduri to discuss the issue of OBC status for the Gorkhas of Uttarakhand.
