GJMM submits memorandum to CM for Gorkhaland

DARJEELING, May 6: The Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha today submitted a memorandum to chief minister Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharya stating that only the separate state of Gorkhaland would fulfill the aspirations of the people of Darjeeling and adjoining areas of Dooars and Siliguri. The memorandum states that the people of the region have been deprived politically, socially and economically and only the separate state of Gorkhaland would bring them at par with the National mainstream.This comes as a follow-up to Mr Bhattacharya’s recent statement that the demands of the GJMM were not clear. Mr Bhattacharya also stated that he co-uld take no action on the issue on the basis of reports in the newspapers, thereby requesting the GJMM to submit a written memorandum to the state government and the Centre. The memorandum states: “Darjeeling and Dooars were never a part of West Bengal but were annexed to West Bengal by accidents of history.” GJMM has appealed the state government to consider the demand in a new perspective and to deliver justice immediately.
