Renewing the demand for inclusion of areas in Dooars and Terai in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA), the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) has formed a four-member committee, entrusting it with the task of preparing a report on the issue.
The AVP was opposed to the inclusion of the Dooars and the Terai in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration in Darjeeling and would submit a memorandum to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee expressing its opposition.
The GJM`s bid to take
out a march to Sipchu in this district in protest against the
February 8 firing on its activists was foiled by police on Thursday
following which a tribal group that began an indefinite bandh
in Dooars area to oppose Gorkhaland withdrew its strike.
