Darjeeling, 22nd October: Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) supporters also took to the streets of Darjeeling, today, to protest against Tanvi Das, who made controversial statements regarding the Gorkha community.
Trinamool Congress supporter Tanvi Dutta in a heated debate on NRC termed the Gorkhas as 'infiltrated' and said that the Gorkhas should be expelled from the country. Das questioned BJP spokesperson R P Singh for supporting the Gorkhas. Not soon after this shocking statement, the Hills erupted with protests against Das.
The GNLF strongly condemned the provocative statement of Tanvi Das by putting up protest posters in Darjeeling and also staged a procession. On this occasion, agitated GNLF supporters burnt the effigy of Tanvi Das. They demanded Das to withdraw her obnoxious statement towards Indian Gorkhas and apologize to the entire community.
