In a show of solidarity, top-GJM leadership led by General Secretary Roshan Giri, VP Col. Ramesh Aley (Rtd), Swaraj Thapa and morcha leaders from Terai and Dooars yesterday met with Mr. Krishna Chettri in Siliguri.
It might be recalled that Mr. Chettri, the President of Gorkha Jan Kalyan Manch has been on an indefinite hunger strike since the 15th of Nov, 2016.
The GJM team stated that they were visiting Mr. Chettri to show their solidarity with the cause of Gorkhaland.
Speaking to the press, Mr. Roshan Giri said, “even though we may be from different political parties, with different ideologies, our goal is the same, to for the Gorkhaland state… so we have come to extend our moral support.”
He added, “we will continue with our pre-announced program and hold rallies and vigil in Delhi from December 12th to the 16th.”
He said, further decisions on their strategy will be determined following the Delhi protests.
Mr. Chettri’s health has however continued to deteriorate, and he has accused the government of completely ignoring and sidelining the aspirations of Gorkha community.
