Gorkha National Liberation Front sets out to renew units in Darjeeling

The Times Of India


DARJEELING: The Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) plans to re-establish its branch committees, which were dissolved around four years ago in the three Hills sub-divisions.

Recently, GNLF chief Subash Ghisingh, in exile in Jalpaiguri, had announced appointment of chief conveners M G Subba, Nima Lama and Maurice Kalikotey for Darjeeling, Kurseong and Kalimpong, respectively. “Within a month, we will form our branch committees in the sub-divisions as per the directive of our party president,” Subba said on Thursday.

According to the GNLF Darjeeling convener, Ghisingh has plans to revamp the functioning of party activity in the Hills. “The old politics of going against the own people must be shunned. Time has come for all stakeholders to work together,” said Subba. The party will also launch an awareness campaign to garner support for including the Darjeeling Hills under the Sixth Schedule.

“To develop the socio-economic fabric of the Hills, it is imperative that peace and stability is maintained. Fighting against each other will only provide opportunity to vested elements to take advantage,” said Subba.
