Siliguri: Lt Gen (retd) Vijay Madan, the Interlocutor for talks on the Gorkhaland issue said he was hopeful of an early solution to the Gorkhaland issue as both the West Bengal government and the Centre were sincere on the issue and their initiatives were on the 'right direction'.

Lt Gen Madan told reporters here that he would hold talks with the GJM leadership within a day or two and discuss different points relevant to the next round of political level talks scheduled in the middle of next month.

Though he did not elaborate the exact situation of talks at the moment, Madan said that the very purpose of his visit to Darjeeling hills was to elaborate the strategies of both the state and the Centre on the demand of Gorkhaland to make the May tripartite talks fruitful.
