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)
