Sukhia Pokhri, 31st March: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) Binay faction of Dhajea, protested against the controversial statement made by the National General Secretary of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) Kailash Vijayvargiya in Kurseong on Monday.
It is to recall, on Monday, the BJP leader was accompanying the party's Kurseong assembly candidate B. P. Bajgain along with the Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) supporters in a foot march before filing the nomination papers. While addressing the media, Kailash Vijayvargiya said that the state government jointly with the central government "will resolve issues relating to Nepal's 11 communities."
This immediately triggered the people of the Gorkha community who already are battling an identity crisis with regard to their Indian citizenship. Various posters condemning the statement of the BJP leader were slapped on the walls across the region.
