Darjeeling braces for 72-hour bandh

Pro and anti-Gorkhaland forces have called for consecutive bandhs for three days in Darjeeling district following the deadlock over the recent tripartite talks.



Siliguri: Pro and anti-Gorkhaland forces have called for consecutive bandhs for three days in Darjeeling district following the deadlock over the recent tripartite talks.

Bangla O Bangla Bhasa Bachao Samiti, an anti-Gorkhaland organisation, called a 24-hour West Bengal bandh tomorrow in protest against the government holding talks with the GJM.

On the other hand, Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) has called a 48-hour bandh from Saturday in their proposed territory which includes Siliguri and a part of Dooars.

The party was demanding political-level talks to demarcate the territory of their proposed interim authority.

These bandhs come even as the indefinite office bandh in Darjeeling hills entered the fourth day today.

Official-level talks have failed to make a headway on May 11 owing to GJM`s insistence on discussing the territorial jurisdiction of the proposed interim authority.
