Darjeeling: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee was to sit for a meeting with the leader of Gorkha Janamukti Morcha, Bimal Gurung , on Thursday. But Bimal Gurung is unlikely to attend the meeting. According to sources, Roshan Giri would be a representative of the Gorkhas and meet the CM. Bimal Gurung had to leave for Nepal,hence, he would not be a part of the meeting. The political sphere of the country has seen the move to be a strategic one on the part of Bimal Gurung.
It is to be noted that a cold war had started between the Morchas and TMC prior to the Lok Sabha elections regarding the GTA issue. The Morchas have claimed that the state government has not given full independence to the Morchas yet.
