Breaking News In The Hills

Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, the present leading party of the hills has strictly declared two days of complete strike (today 15th and 16th of May 2010) in the hills (Darjeeling, Kurseong, Kalimpong...). The party’s leader Mr. Bimal Gurung has declared that all schools and tea states and government offices to be closed completely. However the tea states workers whose livelihood depends on their daily wages are protesting against the bandh. And the party has also declared ten days of bandh from June 12th onwards to draw the attention of the government.

The reason for the strike is said to make the government pay heed to the demands of the people of hills for a different state by the name “Gorkha Land”. However the government has so far turned deaf ears to the voices of the hills. In the recently held bureaucratic-level meeting on 11th May the Centre and the state refused to discuss the matter of giving the Gorkhas a different state. So in response to that the part is herby holding two days complete strike in the hills.

However it seems that the GJM has lost some of its trusts from the people of the hills because some parties are arising against them especially in stopping the bandh. Because it seems that bandh has already caused a drastic fall in the business growth of the people of the hills as many of the tourist have already cancelled their tour plans. Hopefully we are expecting no violence as there is every chance that the situation can change because of all the oppositions.

We wait to see what comes out of this in anticipation and prayer……..
