Interim council will not dilute demand for separate State: Gorkha Janmukti Morcha

Darjeeling, Aug 20 (ANI): A delegation of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), a forum crusading for the formation of a separate Gorkhaland state, said the interim council would not, in any way, dilute their demand for a separate State.

A delegation led by General Secretary of the GJM, Roshan Giri, visited New Delhi this week to attend a tripartite meeting with officials of the central and West Bengal governments.

Giri said talks on election, tenure and the composition would be taken up during the next meeting, which is scheduled for September 7.

"Talks on election, tenure, composition will be taken up on September 7, and this interim council will not, in any way, destabilize our demand for the formation of Gorkhaland," said Giri.

Earlier, the 'political-level' talks were held in New Delhi on July 24. By Tarak Sarkar (ANI)
