In Monday’s meeting of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leaders with the new West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, she is said to have declined CBI inquiry into the February 8 killings of Gorkhaland supporters in Sibchu. That was enough to put the lid of patience of Gorkha leaders off.
Within two days of the Monday meeting, a seven member delegation of Gorkha leaders along with GJM Supremo Bimal Gurung, General Secretary Roshan Giri and all the three newly elected MLAs of GJM have reached New Delhi to talk to the Central Government about their major demands.
