Bengal BJP chief meets Gorkha delegation amid fears over Bengali

Bengal BJP chief meets Gorkha delegation amid fears over BengaliMP|7 Jun 2017 | Kolkata: BJP's West Bengal unit chief Dilip Ghosh on Wednesday met a Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) delegation here amid massive protest by the hill party against the alleged imposition of Bengali in Darjeeling schools by the Mamata Banerjee government.

The Trinamool Congress government led by Banerjee has denied the charge.

Ghosh met the delegation led by GJM's General Secretary Roshan Giri.

"Meeting the representatives of GJM,... discussing about changing political scenario of West Bengal," Ghosh said in a tweet.

On Tuesday, hundreds of GJM supporters led by party chief Bimal Gurung waved black flags and burnt Banerjee's effigies in Darjeeling district.

They demanded the state government should issue a circular that Bengali would not be made compulsory in the hills.

On Monday, Banerjee had accused the GJM-run Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) -- the development authority in the north Bengal hills -- of "spreading falsehood" about "imposition" of Bengali language.

She said at a meeting in Mirik that "Bengali would not be compulsory at schools in the Darjeeling hills and in certain areas of the Dooars and the Terai".

Banerjee has also announced a special audit to check how the GTA has utilised the government aids and warned of punitive measures if any discrepancies were found.

In the just concluded civic polls in the hills, the GJM managed to retain its top spot, but the Trinamool also made substantial gains by winning the Mirik Notified area, and picking up seats in Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong.
