Sikkim CM Pawan Chamling today demanded urgent intervention of the Centre for early settlement of the Gorkhaland issue!

Darjeeling stand-off takes a very serious turn as representatives of all hill parties decided to go on fast unto death to push their demand for Gorkhaland. Mamata Banerjee`s belated call for peace and talks rejected and hitherto no initiative from the centre to resolve the issue. Hills parties also decided to gherao all SDO offices and have warned that the people from every corner of the Hills would come down to Siliguri with bags to get ration! Particularly this decision if translated in act might create quite an anarchy as Anti Gorkhaland movement in plains has been launched which means economic blockade of Darjeeling as well as Sikkim.

The chairman and vice chairman of the development boards set up by the State government have been asked to resign at 6pm on July 14.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee who addressed a public gathering at Digha in Purba Medinipur assured people that her government would restore peace in the hills. While she urged the people in the hills to give peace a chance and not play with fire, she accused the Centre of creating tension in the Darjeeling hills.

Shamsul Haq rightly pointed out in detail in his article published in INDIAN EXPRESS that Baduria and Basirhat have no history of communal clash or riots even in repartition days. Mamata Banerjee is framing government of India alleging that the centre has been behind the riots in Basirhat and it opened the border with Bangladesh wherefrom Bangladeshi nationals came over to Basirhat and Baduria who were indulged in communal violence.

Basirhat is returning to normalcy and the media based in Kolkata played a very positive role to sustain peace. RSS leaders based in Bengal and rest of India misused social media to provoke hindutva with false scenes posted, copied and pasted from films, Gujarat killings and Bangladesh communal clash.

But Darjeeling seems to be quite a different issue and media is not playing that positive role as far as Darjeeling and Sikkim are concerned. Mamata Banerjee sees RSS hand in Gorkhaland movement and lost the opportunity to resolve the problem taking peace initiative earlier.

Now as it happened, an all-party meeting in Darjeeling on Tuesday concluded that one representative of each political party in the hills will undertake a fast unto death from July 15 to take forward the demand of Gorkhaland. Announcing the decision, Benoy Tamang, Assistant General Secretary of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), said the on-going indefinite strike that began on June 15 will continue.
