Darjeeling: Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJMM) have preponed their all party meeting and will convene the same on July 11.

The West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had urged the (GJMM) to resolve their issues over talks at the all party meeting held in Siliguri. However, the GJM, did not participate then.

Meanwhile, on Thursday Darjeeling police lodged an FIR against GJM chief Bimal Gurung and his wife Asha Gurung in connection with the death of three GJM workers in Singhmari a few days back for causing the deaths of three GJM supporters during the protests.

Apparently, the police is alleging that the three died due to bullets fired by GJM workers.
However, GJM wants a CBI inquiry into the incident. Yesterday, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said that at least four companies of the Border Security Forces (BSF) forces that were deployed by the Centre were turned back by the West Bengal Government.

According to the sources, the Centre had already sent 11 companies of personnel to Darjeeling to quell the unrest taken out by people demanding a separate Gorkhaland.
Hours before, Mamata accused the Centre of creating tension in the state.

She alleged that there was non-cooperation from the Centre to curb violence in the state. Mamata further said that the forces were not deployed on time, which further flared up violence around the West Bengal border.
