New Delhi: April 17, 2012
The 2nd major political party of the hills, Communist Party of Revolutionary Marxists (CPRM) has been successful in extending their party’s branch in New Delhi and Haryana apart from Darjeeling. Regarding the same meetings were held at Sarojini Nagar, New Delhi and Western Royal Inn, Haryana on April 14 and 15 respectively.
With the motives to make the Gorkhaland cause more prominent in the nation, to bring together the Indian national Gorkhas together and also to gain support from other communities, the CPRM has formed their new branches in two of the major cities of the country. “Gorkhaland cause should be carried forward with both brain and brawn”, states CPRM.
The New Delhi branch was formed under the chairmanship of Basant Suman Rai whereas the Haryana branch was under Kiran BK’s chairmanship.
The former Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), New Delhi branch Secretary, and Haryana branch President namely Uttam Kumar Chettri and Kiran BK respectively addressing the gathering said that they supported GJM for 3 long years. The GJM politicians had promised the public about achieving Gorkhaland, but now it seems like they have traded Gorkhaland with Gorkha Territorial Administration (GTA).
Adding more they stated that the GTA has been a blow to the dreams of thousand Gorkhas in the country. They have hoped that unlike the GJM the CPRM will not play with the sentiments of the people. “We from today will work under the party principles and programmes and will work for the betterment of the Gorkhas” they said. They also said that it is high time for the people to support GTF who has been doing the commendable job and it will be definitely be a strongest weapon in future which can help in attaining the statehood.
The CPRM president LN Lama and General Secretary Taramani Rai handed the party flag to the duo and Uttam Kumar for Delhi and Kiran BK for Haryana were chosen as the Coordinators.
