Restore peace in Darjeeling Hills, urges WB Guv

The GJM is spearheading a violent campaign for a separate state of Gorkhaland out of WB.



Malda: West Bengal Governor M K Narayan
Friday asked all political parties to help restore peace in the trouble-torn Darjeeling Hills and Dooars area of Jalpaiguri district.
"It is very much essential to help restore peace in
Darjeeling Hills and Dooars area and everybody including
political parties should play a role in restoring peace,"
Narayanan told reporters here.

The Governor said the situation in the Darjeeling Hills
is not so serious that it needs the deployment of the army
there.
The Gorkha JanaMukti Morcha (GJM), which is spearheading
the demand for a separate state of Gorkhaland comprising the
Darjeeling Hills and some areas of Dooars, is observing an
indefinite strike in the Hills from Wednesday to protest the
police firing at Sipchu in Jalpaiguri district on Tuesday
which left two persons dead.

Normal life was completely paralysed in the Darjeeling
Hills in response to the GJM strike on Wednesday and Thursday.
