Home Minister agreed to set up a committee to examine Gorkhaland

Darjeeling : The GJM delegation briefed the issue of a Central University for GTA area as it is a long standing demand of the people of the Hills. The GJM briefed the Hon’ble Minister that education is one of the most important pillars of a successful community and society, people living in the Darjeeling hills, Terai and Dooars region have been deprived of this fundamental and most basic of social rights by the succeeding Bengal governments. Darjeeling region is home to some of the best schools and colleges in India and students from all over Asia come to study in our beloved hills. Yet in terms of higher education, we severely lag behind the rest of India, due to a systematic oppression meted out by the Bengal government. The GJM delegation also requested to expedite the inclusion of 10 communities namely Bhujel, Gurung, Mangar, Newar, Jogi, Khas, Rai, Sunwar, Thami, Yakhha (Dewan) and Dimal in the Schedule Tribe List. The Hon’ble Home Minister appealed the GJM delegation to postpone their 3 day Delhi Dharna for Gorkhaland as the Government has decided to set up a committee to examine the demand of Gorkhaland. He also said that the new BJP Government was just 7 months old and wanted some time to look into our demands. 

On Rajnath Singh ji’s request the GJM has decided to postpone the 3 day Delhi Dharna and ask the Central Government to expedite the formation of the committee to examine our demand for Gorkhaland. The GJM has supported the BJP in the last elections because BJP has always been in favour of formation of smaller states. It should be noted that it was during the NDA’s rule that 3 small states of Uttarkhand, Jharkhand and Chattisgarh was created The GJM will also have a public meeting on 7th December where we will announce our future political program and brief the public about political developments in Delhi. The GJM will have a meeting on 27th November at 12.30 pm in Gorkha Rangamanch with all its central committee members, MLAs, Sub Division members, GTA members, Municipality Chairmans & Commissioners, all parent body members of the various organizations under the GJM regarding the recent political developments in Delhi and future political program of the party.
