Eyeing Development, Mamata to Meet Gurung


Darjeeling: Diverting from the past collision course, West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee is likely to hold a crucial meeting with Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung on Tuesday.

As per reports Mamata will meet Gurung at Richmond Hill. The key issues that will feature in the meet are development in the hill district and an overall evaluation of developmental work going on in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) headed by the later.

The CM will also launch the ‘Clean and Green Darjeeling’ initiative in Darjeeling on Tuesday. Earlier it was speculated that Gurung will skip the meet as relations have turned sour between TMC and Morcha after the later extended support to BJP in the last Lok Sabha polls.
