DEEP MILAN PRADHAN, MIRIK, 2 Mar 2014: Noted academician and Darjeeling Dooars United Development Foundation chief Dr. Mahendra P Lama who has been spearheading activities to garner support for himself in the upcoming LS elections, today addressed a meeting here at Puhguri Dara Gaon community hall.
Lama pointed out that even though the Goakha community has served a lot for the country, it has got nothing in return.
Stressing on the need to promote education in the hills, Lama said education is the primary requisite to win other rights. He also claimed today’s meeting in Phuguri was the 102nd meeting that he has addressed during his campaign. “I have visited 102 places in the district and interacted with the people. I feel that people have become more aware during this period and are understanding things in their correct sense” Lama asserted.
He said DDUDF has not been formed to instigate or pull anyone down, but to fight for educational and other development of the region.
