GJM activists turn violent after police raid on party chief's house

Parmenio Sano | 25 Giugno, 2017, 15:51

Thirty-five security personnel, including an India Reserve Battalion officer, were injured during widespread clashes between GJM activists and the police on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has spoken to Mamata over the law and order situation in Darjeeling where the GJM has been leading a violent protest for seven days now.

Banerjee later said the decision would not be implemented in the Darjeeling hills but, by then, the protests, led by the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha under the leadership of Gorkha Territorial Administration's chief executive Bimal Gurung, had transformed into a movement for a separate state of Gorkhaland. Refuting allegations of Mamata Banerjee that GJM has links with rebel groups of Northeast, Gurung asked his supporters to assemble at Chawk Bazar area in Darjeeling town on Sunday morning. "The central and the state governments are using us as pawns to serve their own political interests".

On BJP's stand regarding formation of smaller states, Shah said, "It is true that we are in favour of small states. The struggle will intensify in the hills".

India's internal affairs minister Rajnath Singh tweeted: "All concerned parties and stakeholders should resolve their differences and misunderstandings through dialogue in amicable environment".

A large number of women GJM workers also came out on the streets to protest.


Stray incidents of violence were reported from Darjeeling and nearby areas and six suspected GJM supporters were yesterday detained on the second day of the shutdown called by the outfit. "Nobody should resort to violence".

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha on Sunday said a dialogue must be initiated with those demanding a separate Gorkhaland state and the issue thoroughly examined, and that it should not be kept lingering for long.

On June 17, baton-wielding police fired teargas shells to disperse protesters after they were attacked with stones, leaving 12 people injured in the attack.

The GJM activists marched with the coffins of the three activists who were allegedly shot dead in the police firing in Darjeeling's Singmari on Saturday. However, the GJM has condemned all sorts of violence in the region and said that miscreants, rather than GJM volunteers, were involved in the violence.

Banerjee said she is ready for talks but not under the current situation.

"We are being made pawns by the Centre and the State", he said. Experts fear the bloodshed might lurch Darjeeling back to the unrest of the 80s, when hundreds of people died as the state government brutally suppressed the movement.
