Gangtok: The United Gorkha Revolutionary
Front (UGRF), a Gorkha outfit, on Thursday threatened to `hang`
Gorkha Jan Mukti Morkha (GJM) negotiators if they failed to
secure a separate Gorkhaland state at the December 21
tripartite talks with the Center.
"The GJM negotiators will be deemed as traitors and
hanged in the event of their failure to usher in a separate
state for the Gorkha people," the UGRF President Ajay Dahal
said in a statement here.
The Gorkha community is pinning its hope that their long
standing aspiration for a separate state will be fulfilled at
the talks, he said, adding creation of the Gorkhaland state
will be a `fitting tribute` to those pro-statehood supporters
who have laid down their lives for the cause in the past
Dahal also threatened to launch a militant struggle on
the statehood demand in the wake of an unsatisfactory outcome
at the crucial tripartite talks later this month.
