Subas Ghising's Son Mohan to Lead Gorkha National Liberation Front

Siliguri : The youngest child of Subas Ghising, Mohan, was today named the party chief by the GNLF. "A meeting of our central committee was held in Siliguri this morning. There were 17 members present and they have unanimously selected Mohan Ghising as the new president of the GNLF. He will succeed his father, who was our party chief since the formation of the party in 1980," said Mahendra Chhetri, the general secretary of the GNLF, in front of the Bagdogra airport this afternoon. Mohan, who is in his thirties, has been Ghising's constant companion for several years, but has never betrayed any interest to join politics. When Mohan emerged from the airport, with his father's body, and was asked about being named the party chief, he said: "I am not in a position to comment on the issue. I will speak to party leaders and will act accordingly." Chhetri said the party would continue with Ghising's demand of Sixth Schedule status for the hills.
