The Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) has called for an indefinite shutdown on Thursday to protest the deaths of two of its supporters in police firing two days ago, reports CNN IBN. GJM has sharpened its stance on Gorkhaland with one of its leader, Harka Bahadur Chettri, announcing that there can be no interim arrangements.
Reacting to Tuesday’s violence Chettri said, “When the mob, the public, they don’t have a space, they do not belong to a party, public is public and when they saw a 6 year boy being shot point blank, when they saw a 23-year old young girl shot point blank, lying in a pool of blood and seeing this in the TV screen, what can you expect?”
He blamed the West Bengal government for turning a “peaceful movement into a bloody one”. “So far as the future of the next tripartite talks is concerned, I am very clear that this particular important question should be addressed by the state government because state government which fought that round, which turned this peaceful movement into a bloody one, still the GJM has refrained from violence, in fact the president of GJM made an appeal, even went to the extent of saying that if this arson and these continues, then I will withdraw my movement,” he said.
