Darjeeling: A look out notice has been issued against Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung and general secretary Roshan Giri by the police, said ADG (Law and Order) Anuj Sharma on Friday.
This comes right after the expulsion of party assistant general secretary Binay Tamang and Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) member Anit Thapa for violating party line.
On Thursday, a section of the GJM’s central committee met in Kurseong and decided to suspend the indefinite shutdown in Darjeeling and Kalimpong till September 12, when the Hills parties would be meeting West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee in Siliguri for a second round of talks.
But, the suspension of the shutdown resulted in turmoil and confusion within the GJM as another group, apparently with party president Bimal Gurung’s blessings, removed Tamang from the post.
A delegation of the GJM leaders met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on August 29 and submitted a memorandum demanding a judicial inquiry into the deaths caused due to police action.
The meeting was also attended by other hill parties like the Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) and the Jan Andolan Party (JAP).
Accord to reports, the TMC chief said that the meeting was held on a positive note and was cordial.
“It’s the beginning of a dialogue process. We are happy we have been able to sit across the table. We have requested them to withdraw the strike since it’s causing a great hardship to the people,” Mamata had said.
