WB Governor sends report to Centre

In Darjeeling, GJM activists sparred with paramilitary personnel, hurling stones from a distance. Speaking to The Indian Express, Sarita Rai said, "We have apprised the Governor of the injustice meted out to the people of the hills by the state government.People in the hills do not have their freedom of expression".

GJM supporters torch health centre, hydel project. She directed the police to take action against those taking law in their own hands.

During the raid at Gurung's office, cops recovered bows, explosives, two bags full of currency notes and night vision binocular sets. But one can not do politics with guns and bombs. "Our one-point agenda is Gorkhaland and we will not cower before any threat", GJYM president Prakash Gurung had said.

GNLF, an ally of the Trinamool Congress, had on Wednesday snapped its ties with West Bengal's ruling party, giving a fillip to the agitation for a separate State of Gorkhaland. A North Bengal Transport Corporation bus, bound for Bijanbari from Siliguri, was set ablaze by pro-Gorkhaland protesters, who also beat up the driver and the conductor.

"Mamata (Banerjee) has not handled the situation in the hills with as much caution and understanding as she should have. They want to suppress us using huge police force", GJM General Secretary Roshan Giri said.

The High Court on Friday cited its 2013 judgment terming bandhs/shutdowns as illegal and asked the West Bengal government to submit an interim report.

The GTA was formed in 2012 after a tripartite agreement was signed between the state and union government and GJM which had been agitating for a separate hill state.

Bose held the state government responsible for the escalated tension in Darjeeling and said that the ruling regime can not solve this issue by simply providing some funds and forming the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA).

"It seems that there is a clash of ego between the state government and GJM. there should be meetings and discussions in the hills to sort out the situation".

"We strongly condemn the raids at our offices in Darjeeling".

On the recovery of weapons, Giri had earlier said, "What have they found?" What is the harm in keeping it? "We were in the process of organising our traditional archery competition".

Central minister S S Ahluwalia, elected from Darjeeling with GJM support, said, "Our commitment to the GJM is that the BJP will sympathetically examine the long-pending demands of the Gorkhas and adivasis of Darjeeling and Dooars".
