The Political Bureau of the CPI (M) on Thursday expressing its concern issued a statement saying, "Normalcy needs to be restored in the region and this can happen only through negotiations with the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM)". Today, as the raid on our party president's house was going on, a group of state actors in plain clothes were seen hovering around the house along with the police party near the place where the Zee News vehicle was burnt down.

Asked why did the GNLF join hands with the GJM, its sworn enemy in the hills, Zimba said, "It is true that we have our own differences, but for the sake of the people we have chose to keep aside our differences and fight for Gorkhaland". The state government's lack of trust on the local press is evident. The home minister stepped in after Darjeeling, the popular hill resort of Bengal witnessed an upsurge of violence and the matter turned into a crisis for Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

The Centre and the state government should resolve the "political problem", he said.

"We were agitating in a peaceful manner". Many Nepali-speaking people of the hills are in one voice protesting against any sort of linguistic imperialism. "They want to suppress us by using huge police force", GJM general secretary Roshan Giri, who is in the national capital, told PTI. The seized items included large numbers of modern synthetic bows and arrows, sickles, knives (Khukri), wood cutters. Reports also said that the GJM called an all-party meeting on Tuesday, June 13, to unanimously fight for Gorkhaland. We are tribals and need our rights, traditions, heritage and culture is not being respected. Police is showing them as our weapons. "The movement for Gorkhaland will be intensified", he said, adding that he would resign from the post of GTA chief executive shortly. "They (police) are acting like the TMC cadres", he alleged. "Two boxes of firecrackers were left overs from our recent municipal election wins celebrations", it said.

Terming the GJM's call for complete shut down as illegal and a crusade against the people, state Tourism Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Gautam Deb vowed to stop the strike at any cost. The situation escalated when police stopped and lathicharged at a rally that was scheduled to start from Darjeeling town from Patlybas. The police according to the Indian Express had raided the office the GJM leader. Police pickets and barricades were put up in front of the government and the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) offices and various entry and exit points of the hills, while Rapid Action Force (RAF) and a sizable number of women police personnel were also deployed.
