Darjeeling, Sep 1 (UNI) The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) today rubbished news reports that the party was considering lifting of social boycott on Subash Ghisingh, saying the GNLF leader was still an "unwanted man" in the hills.

Two members each from Siliguri and Jalpaiguri could be either from intellectuals, academicians or any other group like ngos.

The GJM will meet again on Septmber four here to chalk out the strategy and who will lead the delegation, added Tamang.
