In the backdrop of ongoing protests in Darjeeling by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, chief of GJM Bimal Gurung on Friday slammed the West Bengal government for raiding his office premises.
Gurung said “Administration unlawfully attacked my house, our party office on instructions from Mamata Banerjee. Such attack is dangerous for democracy.” He further added: “Our party members and opposition parties will reply to that atrocity.”
The GJM also called for an indefinite shutdown of the hills following the police raids on premises connected with GJM chief Bimal Gurung and other leaders.
The GJM chief said “TMC cadres entered in my house with the help of the police and the administration. It is a dangerous political game. The way the TMC has done politics with the CPI-M, the BJP and the Congress, in the same way, they are acting in the hills”.
“I appeal to everyone to be united for this final fight. Mamata Banerjee cannot suppress our demand,” he further added.
