DARJEELING: The GJM, spearheading the agitation for a separate Gorkhaland, adopted a confrontationist stand on Friday with its chief Bimal Gurung threatening to intensify the stir and demanding a CBI inquiry into the alleged police firing in the hills on June 17.
Gurung, who resigned as the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) chief executive along with other elected members of the body during the day, said, “The agitation for Gorkhaland will continue.
We have resigned from the GTA. Our one point demand is Gorkhaland.”
The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) leader, who was not seen in public for the past several days, appeared before the media at Patlebas in Darjeeling, a party stronghold.
“I am not Kishenji (Maoist leader) who can be eliminated in a police encounter.
I have not taken up arms against the country.
