Once again the politics of the mountains has started to climb. The demand for a separate Gorkhaland is set to rise in Delhi this time. Several organizations, including Gorkhaland activists, are going to sit in the heart of the capital rather than separate states. They demanded that Gorkhaland should be made a separate state immediately.
And that has to be done before the next Lok Sabha election. A team of 15 has already left Siliguri for Delhi. The organization has informed that the demand will be informed to the center in this regard.
On the other hand, BJP MP Raj Bista has raised voice in Parliament about GTA. The GTA was formed by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee soon after the shift in the state. But for a long time there was no vote in GTA. However, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee recently visited North Bengal.
He went there and asked for a lasting political solution. Even the GTA hinted at voting. And Raju Bist raised the issue in Parliament. He said the GTA election at the Center should be canceled. The BJP MP also demanded that intervention should be made in this regard. However, Trinamool MPs strongly objected to this.
The mountains are calm now. However, Bimal Gurung has returned to the hills before the assembly elections. He is walking around in public. Mountain politics is divided into two at the moment. Although on the whole there is peace in the mountains at the moment. But a new black cloud of fear is forming in the sky of the mountains. The winter session is underway at the moment. And this time has been chosen by the organization to demand.
Their demand is that the demand of Gorkhaland will be raised in front of the country. No action has been taken in this regard. Assurance from all sides. However, this time the organization has informed that a dharna will be held in Delhi demanding this. Their message is that by 2024, the hill will have to be given the status of a separate state.
However, no response has been received from the grassroots so far. Earlier, Mamata Banerjee had said in the Gorkhaland issue that she would not allow Bengal to be divided in any way. He also gave a clear message that the BJP’s conspiracy in this regard will not be accepted. However, there is a new movement-demonstration in this demand. Again in the heart of the country’s capital. As a result, political businessmen fear unrest. However, the BJP did not comment on the matter.
