GJM asks Narbula to vote for UPA if Gorkhaland demand conceded

Kolkata, July 16 (PTI) The GJM today asked Congress MP from Darjeeling Dawa Narbula to vote for the UPA government “only if the Centre makes a commitment on the creation of a separate Gorkhaland state.” “GJM president Bimal Gurung has categorically told this to Narbula over telephone today,” Gorkha Janmukti Morcha general secretary Roshan Giri told PTI over phone from Darjeeling.
The MP had been elected by the hill people and it is his “bounden duty” to work for the cause of the Gorkhaland, he said.

“We want him to vote for the UPA government in the July 22 trust vote only if there is commitment by the Centre on the creation of Gorkhaland; otherwise he should not vote in favour of the government.” Asked what the GJM would if he did not adhere to Gurung’s ‘instruction’, Giri said, “People should not allow him to enter Darjeeling.” Narbula who was elected to the Lok Sabha from Darjeeling on a Congress ticket in 2004 was not available for comment.
