The AIGL team had a fruitful meeting with the Chief Minister, informed party secretary Lakusman Pradhan to media here in Darjeeling. The AIGL delegation had called upon the Chief Minister to demand for CBI probe in the murder of party president Madan Tamang, restoration of democracy in Darjeeling hills and other demands.

The AIGL delegation was led by Bharati Tamang, wife of the slain party president.
The Chief Minister assured us and asked for some time to arrest the murderers and to remove the GLP camps within a month, said the AIGL functionary.

AIGL polit-bureau member Mohan Sharma has termed the fresh indefinite bandh call of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha in the hills as ‘unjustified’. Nothing can be achieved except pressing more economic burdens on the people with such bandhs, he said.
