“In the leadership of M.P, S.S Ahluwalia, the former, discarded leaders of Gorkha Jan Mukti Morha have been trying to raise the demand of tribal status of 11 tribal communities residing in the hills.Appeasing the strike that lasted for 105 days we have been trying to stabilize the political scenario and are trying to find solutions to most of the issues related to the hills. Similarly, the issue of ‘Tribal Status’ has progressed rapidly after the meetings of the Board of Administration.
However, at our initiative, the Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee had also written to the Tribal Minster, Jual Oram on 14th of February 2018 and in the initiative of GTA all 11 tribal communities have met the concerned ministers and have submitted memorandum to various other ministers.
The Chief Minister of Sikkim too has been supporting this issue as we have maintained a cordial relationship with him, and in regard to this, our demand and issue has progressed positively.
Now, this progress is letting Bimal Gurung, and other rejected leaders to gain sympathy from the people of the hills. The former leaders did not work on the ground when they had time but now they have been trying to use this progress as their vote-stunt for the election that is going to be held next year.
The memorandum alone won’t solve all problems, if it could, why didn’t the issue of central university, tribal issues, and statehood of Gorkhaland get solved?
However, with new thoughts and new vision, many positive works has been going on to which the public will be able to enjoy the benefits prior to the Lok Sabha election, next year.
We will reach to the conclusion and give good news to the people, but as the other faction got aware of this progress, they have been trying to take the credit but all those tribal communities who have been working with us is equally acknowledgeable. But know that the rejected leaders have been trying to take away all the credits and have been trying to betray the innocent people.
Gorkha Janmukti Morcha”
