Champasari Block (WB), May 5 (ANI): Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung has charged the West Bengal Government with creating hurdles in the democratic movement of his party.

Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, Gurung termed this act of the Left Front as follies similar to its mistakes in Singur and Nandigram, which would wipe out the ruling alliance in the 2011 assembly elections.

"We know that the police will intercept us everywhere...the policemen blocked us our agitations which is not good. This very policy will wipe out the state government. The government had followed this policy in Nandigram and Singur and it is the main reason of the fallout of CPI (M) in the province and I hope that in the forthcoming 2011 assembly elections the party would be wiped out completely," Gurung said The sixth round of tripartite talks between the GJM, the Central and West Bengal Governments" is to be held on May 14.

The GJM had agreed during the fifth round of tripartite talks in New Delhi to the constitution of Interim Council by next year prior to the creation of a separate state.

The Gorkhas are demanding a separate state to protect their culture and heritage.

The Gorkha population in West Bengal is estimated to be around a million. (ANI)
