Santiniketan, Feb 27 (UNI) Beleaguered GNLF supremo Subash Ghisingh, denied entry into Darjeeling since February 18, today said he would return home by next two days.

The Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council's caretaker administrator, who arrived here this evening, had planned to spend some days here, but returned abruptly to Kolkata sending his security personnel off guard.

Before leaving Santiniketan by road, the Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) president said the people of Darjeeling were misled about the Sixth Schedule provision and added he was not opposed to a separate state for people in the hills.

To a question, he said he would not meet any opposition leader in the hills, including Gorkha Janamukti Morcha(GJM) founder leader and arch rival Bimal Gurung.

'' I am not concerned. It is the Government, both Centre and the state, to decide who would be called in the meeting to sort out problem in Darjeeling, '' he stated.

Mr Ghising also did not react to today's meeting between the GJM's delegation led by Gurung and Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattachrjee in Writers Buildings.

Mr Ghising after arriving visited various palces of Visva Bahrati including Kala Bhawan and paid homage at the feet of Mahahta Gandhi statue there. He said his first pilgrimage to the abode of peace of Kabiguru reminded his military days when he was awarded for painting a portrait of Rabidnranath Tagore.
