Response to The Telegraph 26 May 2013 ‘Gorkha central force job confusion’ and The Statesman News Service 28 May 2013 ‘Outfit seeks relaxation of norms for recruitments of Gorkhas in paramilitary forces’.
The above two news published in both the national dailies require to be read with great interest by the Gorkhas of the GTA area which coincidently and as an important aspect is now identified with the seven Northeastern States for recruitment in some central forces. This follows another statement by Sitaram Kechury (CPM leader) and presently the Chairman of the Northeast Parliamentary Standing Committee in an earlier newspaper statement conveyed that his Committee had already recommended for inclusion of GTA in the Central Planning Commission. Reading the two aspects conjointly indicates GTA is geopolitically identified with the Northeastern States already though it is ‘seen’ to be positioned within West Bengal. This is interesting to note that already the GTA area is perceived to be different than rest of West Bengal and therefore now being identified with the Northeast for all purposes of future considerations geographically, socially, economically and politically.
