CM Mamata forgot to pay Gorkhas due honour: CPRM

KURSEONG : The Communist Party Revolutionary Marxist has expressed displeasure with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for failing to give any importance to the sacrifices made by the Gorkhas in giving Singapore its present shape. CPRM spokesperson Govind Chhetri said the chief minister on Wednesday garlanded a statue of Subash Chandra Bose in the city-state and talked at length about his life. The CPRM is not opposed to Banerjee in her garlanding Netaji’s statue, but she must have also definitely known that the statue is in honour of the Gorkha community, he said. Netaji had led his Indian National Army comprising mostly of Gorkha soldiers and succeeded in making Singapore a free country. “Given such a backdrop, the chief minister should have spoken a word or two about the contributions of the Gorkhas,” Chhetri added. He also said the CPRM-led Vikalpa Pragatishil Sahitya Sanskritik Sansthan will soon felicitate former Sikkim MP Dil Kumari Bhandari and Darjeeling former Rajya Sabha MP RB Rai for playing key roles in Parliament in achieving constitutional recognition for the Nepali language.
