Statehood no solution: Maoists

Calcutta, June 23: The Nepal Maoists believe the Gorkhaland movement is none of their business but caution that statehood itself is not a solution.
Lakshman Panth, a middle-level leader of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), today said the statehood demand by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha was an “internal affair of India”.
Panth, who attended a meeting organised in Calcutta by a forum of 14 Naxalite organisations, however, added that the creation of Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh had “hardly solved the problems of the poor people”.
“That’s why we don’t think a Gorkhaland will automatically solve the problems of backwardness among Indian Nepalese or Gorkhas. A lot depends on the character of the leadership.” (The Telegraph)
