Next Gorkhaland meet in Nov

NEW DELHI: The Centre, West Bengal government and Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) on Monday held tripartite talks to find a solution to the demand for a separate state. The talks will be held again in November.

GJM substantiated its demand with supporting documents, including an area map. The GJM argued that the demand for statehood was not only legitimate but also the core concern of the Gorkhas. “I hope both the Centre and the state would agree to our demand,” GJM general secretary Roshan Giri said.

“GJM representatives have articulated their demands in a frank discussion. Now, we will study the documents submitted by them,” said Madhukar Gupta, Union home secretary.  (TOI)
