Morcha Demand
TT, Kumani, Feb. 12:The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha today again ruled out an interim set-up for the hills and told central interlocutor Vijay Madan it would participate in talks only if the Dooars and the Terai were included in the proposed Gorkhaland.
Terming the proposal for the interim set-up “too little, too late”, general secretary Roshan Giri said: “The inclusion of the Dooars and the Terai must feature in talks.”
This morning, Morcha activist Neeta Khawash died of injuries suffered in the Sibchu firing last Tuesday.
SNS, KOLKATA/DARJEELING/SILIGURI,12 FEB: The meeting involving the Centre-appointed interlocutor, Mr Vijay Madan, and the GJMM leadership seems to have failed to thaw the political crisis in the Darjeeling Hills with the agitating party refusing to withdraw or postpone the indefinite shutdown in the Hills. 
The GJMM has decided to postpone the indefinite bandh in the Terai-Dooars region, though. However, GJMM activists would sit in a fast-unto-death in the Dooars tomorrow to press for a CBI probe into the 10 February Sipchu firing. Mr Madan is understood to have assured the GJMM leadership that he would convey the grievances and the demands of the agitators to the Union home minister. The meeting was held at Kumani today where the GJMM president, Mr Bimal Gurung, has been camping since the GJMM padayatra began in the second week of January. 
The development came as chief minister Mr Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said only talks can resolve the impasse in the Hills. Speaking at a function in Kolkata, he said political discussion is essential to restore peace in the Hills. But it is only possible if violence comes to an end, he said. 
State urban development minister and senior CPI-M leader Mr Asok Bhattacharya said in Siliguri today that his party had written a letter to the chief election commissioner in New Delhi, informing him that the situation in the Darjeeling Hills was not conducive to holding elections.
At Writers’, home secretary Mr GD Gautama said the state government will not succumb to any pressure in dealing with violent mode of agitation, a day after Mr Bimal Gurung threatened to ‘set the Hills on fire’ if any attempt is made to arrest him.
The Sipchu firing toll has risen to three with GJMM woman activist Nita Khwas, a resident of Turak, in Kurseong sub-division, having succumbed to her injuries at a private health facility in Siliguri this morning.
TitBits: Rahul Gandhi is attending is attending a programme of Sikkim University on 14th February. 
AAGSU (All Assam Students' Union) will stage a Sit in demonstration in Dispur Last Gate on 16th February  demanding a probe on Shibsu Firing and condemning the police act on innocent people.
It is organising a one hour peace condolence meeting in remembrance of the people killed in Shibsu Firing at Gorkha High School, Paltan Bazar, Guwahati.
TNN, KUMANI/DARJEELING/KOLKATA: The Sibchu firing that catapulted the Dooars and the Darjeeling Hills into a state of unrest took a new turn on Saturday as a third victim, Nita Khawas, 23, died in a Siliguri hospital in the afternoon.
The death added to the tension in the Hills that may explode any day.
The hotspot, however, was Kumani in Kalimgpong where central interlocutor Lt Gen (retd) Vijay Madan held talks with GJM leaders only to be told that there was no question of talks without the inclusion of Gorkhaland in the agenda.
Madan tried hard to reason with the GJM team, led by its president Bimal Gurung and comprising Roshan Giri and H B Chhetri during the meeting at Khumani, near Sibchu.
He asked them to give peace a chance, especially after three-way talks seemed to have made headway, with GJM almost agreeing to the interim arrangement: a Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council with more powers.
Madan asked them not to jeopardize the tripartite talks, but GJM leaders ruled out the Council, harping on the formation of Gorkhaland with inclusion of Dooars and Terai.
As the meeting was being held, Adivasi Vikash Parishad spokesman John Barla said: "We shall never allow Dooars and Terai to be part of Gorkhaland. Nor will we allow GJM to hold rallies here."
Amid the Centre's efforts to broker peace, state home secretary G D Gautama said: "The state government will not succumb to pressure in dealing with the violent mode of agitation." His statement came after Gurung, against whom an FIR has been lodged, said any attempt to arrest him "will put the Hills on fire".
GJM president Bimal Gurung threatened to intensify the stir if any attempt was made to arrest him, but chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee made a last-ditch attempt to buy peace. Addressing a public function on Saturday, the CM said: "The problem in Darjeeling can be sorted out through peaceful political talks and we are ready for that... We cannot compromise with violence." The CM was speaking at the annual combined parade of West Bengal and Kolkata Police Force here.
Meanwhile, GJM's indefinite strike call since February 9 demanding a CBI inquiry into the Sibchu police firing on February 8, which left two of its supporters dead, seemed to have had no effect in the plains. In the Hills, the situation was tense as the 23-year-old Nita, a resident of Sitong II block under Mongpu Latpanchar constituency, died around 2.30pm on Saturday. The police firing victim and GLP member was brought to the Siliguri hospital from Darjeeling on Tuesday. She is the third police firing casualty. Three others are admitted in hospitals.
Ahead of Madan's visit, the GJM put off its elaborate agitation programme, which included gheraoing police stations, in the Hills. GJM members restricted themselves to squatting on the road at Chowk Bazaar. The fourth day of the bandh was generally peaceful even as police continued extensive raids since Friday night, and arrested GJM members Puran Loreng, Sanjay Tamang and Bikas Rai from Bojonbari. The arrests were in connection with the burning of the Bijonbari block office on Tuesday. The three were produced in court and given 14 days' judicial custody.
Meanwhile, Lakshman Prasad, owner of a garage, was brought back to Malbazar on Saturday in custody of the police. On Thursday, he had gone to Kumani to repair a truck, but was beaten up by GJM supporters.

आयो विपक्षको भूमिका खोज्ने समय 
मनोज वोगटी, कालिमन्युज। गोजमुमोको आन्दोलनलाई अहिले माओवादीसित जोड़िँदैछ। यसरी जोड्नमा तराईका दलहरू र सङ्घ-सङ्गठनहरू एक स्वरमा बोलिरहेका छन्। यता पहाड़मा के भइरहेको छ त त्यसको तुलनामा? गहिरिएर हेर्दा सिब्सुकाण्डपछि पहाड़का दलहरू दुलो पसेका छन्‌। जनमुद्दालाई मोर्चाले अहिले प्रतिनिधित्व गरिरहेको छ। मोर्चाले सेटअप छोड़ेर गोर्खाल्याण्ड भन्दैछ। कार्यक्रम गर्ने तरिका मोर्चाको फरक भए पनि मोर्चाले जनतामा राखेको बचनबद्धता र अहिलेको परिस्थितिले मोर्चाले फेरि गोर्खाल्याण्ड छोड़ेर अरू भाका अलाप्ने परिस्थिति छैन। 
तरै पनि किन मौन छ त पहाड़का दलहरू? सामुहिक आन्दोलनको कुरा बारम्बार चल्छ। जसले यो कुरा उठाउँछ उसले जमीनीरूपमा कुनै काम नै गर्दैन। कार्यक्रम गर्ने घोषणा त गर्छ तर कार्यरूपमा आउँदैन। वास्तवमा के पर्खिएका हुन त पहाड़का दलहरूले? के उनीहरू चहान्छन्‌ कि मोर्चा पूर्णरूपले सकियोस्‌ अनि त्यसपछि आन्दोलन गर्ने? सामुहिक आन्दोलन भनेको मोर्चा बाहेक भनेको हो त? विमल गुरूङले मात्र होइन मोर्चा प्रवक्ता डा. हर्कबहादुर छेत्री र अन्य नेताहरूले पनि सबै दललाई अघि आइदिने आह्वान गरिरहेकै छ। यसलाई राजनैतिक फाइदाकोरूपमा ग्रहण गरेर त्यसउता दलीय मित्रताको निम्ति वातावरण बनाउने काम खै गरेको विपक्षका दलहरूले? सिब्सुकाण्डपछि मोर्चा शोकमा छ। पहाड़का जनता शोकमा छन्‌।
 तर खै त अन्य दलहरू यो शोकमा शरिक बन्न सकेको? बङ्गाल सरकारले जुन गोली ठोक्यो त्यो मोर्चालाई होइन गोर्खालाई ठोक्यो।खै त यसको भर्त्सनासम्म गरिएको? विमल गुरूङ डुवर्स जानु र बङ्गाल सरकारले रोक्नुमा खासै राजनैतिक परिणति देखा नपरेपनि बङ्गाल सरकारको प्रशासनबाट जुनरूपले गोली चलाउने काम गर्‍यो, के यो आपत्तिजनक छैन र? यसकाण्डपछि मोर्चालाई होइन गोर्खाल्याण्ड आन्दोलनलाई नै राष्ट्र विरोधी बनाउने चलखेल भइरहेको छ। चीन र माओवादीहरूसित आन्दोलनकारीहरूको सॉंठगॉंठ रहेको कुरा राष्ट्रस्तरमा गरिरहेको छ। के यो कुरा मुद्दाको निम्ति नोक्सानदेही छैन र? क्रामाकपा बाहेक अन्य जम्मै दल मौन रहनुभित्र कस्तो राजनीति लुकेको हुनसक्छ भन्ने कुरा अहिले गतिलै चाखको विषय बनेको छ। 
यता मदन तामङको हत्याकाण्डमाथि सीबीआईले जॉंच गरिरहेको समयमा बङ्गाल सरकारकै प्रशासनले खुलेआम गोली ठोकेर गोर्खाहरूको हत्या गर्दै वातावरण अगणतान्त्रिक बनाइएको छ। यस्तो अवस्थामा न त मदन तामङ हत्याको जॉंच हुनसक्ला न त सिब्सुकाण्ड कै। हत्याको घटनालाई चुनावी फाइदाको निम्ति दुश्प्रयोग भइरहेको गन्ध चारैतिरबाट आइरहेको भए पनि दलहरू किन मौन? यता विधानसभा चुनाउ नजिक छ अनि उता सिब्सुकाण्डले जन्माएको आक्रोस छ। यता सुरक्षाबल हुलेर त्रसित वातावरण बनाइएको छ भने अर्कोतिर मोर्चाका नेताहरू पक्राउ गर्ने कुरा छ। यो स्थितिले अशान्तिको संकेत दिइरहेको भए पनि कुनै पनि दलले यी घटनाहरूमाथि कुनै टिप्पणीसमेत गरेको छैन। 
उता तराईमा सिब्सुकाण्ड अनि विमल गुरूङको कुमानी फरेष्ट बासलाई लिएर राष्ट्रियस्तरमा नै गलत प्रचार भइरहेको छ। पुलिस प्रशासनको पनि बङ्गाल सरकार चलाउने माकपासित नै सॉंठगॉंठ रहेको सबैले अऩुमान गरिरहेको छ। यस्तो अवस्थामा कुनै पनि जॉंचको सही तथ्य पारदर्शी र सहीरूपले आउनसक्ने कुरामाथि पनि शंका गरिनुपर्ने स्थिति बनेको देखापरेको छ। सबैको भनाइ अऩुसार अहिले दलीय एकताको खॉंचो छ अनि सबैले सिब्सुकाण्डलाई केन्द्र गर्दै गोर्खाल्याण्डको निम्ति कुनै पनि संयुक्त पहल गर्न अनिवार्य छ। यसपल्ट पनि प्रशासन लगाएर कुनै पनि परिस्थितिमा आन्दोलनलाई दबाउन बङ्गाल सफल बने अनि कुनै पनि नचाहेको व्यवस्था कोचार्ने काम भए यसको दोष के दलहरूको मौनतालाई पनि जॉंदैन र?
आन्दोलनलाई राष्ट्रविरोधी बनाउने चलखेल?
मनोज वोगटी, कालिमन्युज। सिब्सुकाण्डमाथि सहीरूपले कानूनी जॉंच हुनुपर्ने सम्बन्धमा पहाड़का सङ्गसङ्घठनहरूद्वारा केन्द्र सरकारमा बारम्बार पत्रचार गर्ने कार्य भइरहेको छ।मोर्चा सर्थकहरूमाथि कुनै सूचनाबिना नै गोली चलाउनु, त्यो पनि सोझै निधारमा, यही पुलिस प्रशासनको दोष मानिएको छ। सतर्क रहने कुनै सूचना नगरी, कुनै चेतावनी नदिइ सोझै गोली चलाउनु अनि दुई गोर्खाको हत्या गर्नुले पुलिस प्रशासन आफ्नो कानूनी सीमाबाट बाहिर गएको स्पष्ट भएको मोर्चाले मात्र बताइरहेको छैन पहाड़का सम्पूर्ण दलहरू अनि सङ्घसङ्गठनहरूले पनि बताइरहेको छ। यसको सीबीआई र सीआईडी जॉंच हुने त भनिएको छ तर यसको परिणति सही निस्कन्छ भन्नेकुरामा पहाड़वासीले विश्वास गरिहाल्न भने सक्दैन। 
पहाड़मा हत्याकाण्डमाथि हुने सीबीआई र सीआईडीको जॉंचले अहिलेसम्म कुनै पनि मुद्दालाई न्याय दिएको छैन। एकातिर लीग नेता मदन तामङ हत्याकाण्डमाथि सीबीआई जॉंच भइरहेको छ, तर यत्रोदिनसम्म कुनै परिणाम अघि आइरहेको छैन। सोधपुछ जारी छ अनि विधानसभा चुनाउ अघि सीबीआईले पनि कुनै सही तथ्य निकाल्छ भन्ने कुरा पनि द्विविधामा छ। मोर्चाको गणतान्त्रिक पद्धतिमा भइरहेको पैदलयात्रालाई कुनै विशेष कारण विना नै रोक्नु, एक नेताको पैदल यात्रा रोक्न शैन्य बल खनाउनु र मोर्चालाई अगणतान्त्रिक बन्न उस्काउनुभित्र राजनैतिक चलखेल नै लुकेको स्पष्ट छ। 
यो चलखेल यहॉं आएर स्पष्ट भयो जब सिब्सु काण्डपछि माकपाका नेताहरूले घटनाको दोष मोर्चालाई दिँदै मोर्चासित माओवादीहरूको सॉंठगॉंठ रहेको हल्ला गर्‍यो। गोर्खाल्याण्ड विरोधी माकपाका नेताहरूले जतिसक्दो मोर्चालाई अगणतान्त्रिक बन्न उस्काइरहेको भएपनि मोर्चाले पूर्ण धर्यता सॉंधेको छ। गोर्खाहरूमाथि गोली ठोकिएको छ तरै पनि आन्तरिकरूपमा आक्रोश राखेर पनि विरोधीहरूको राजनैतिक चालबाजीलाई सफल बन्न नदिन मोर्चाले पूर्ण धर्यता अप्नाएको छ। कुमानीमा विमल गुरूङले जङ्गल दखल गरेको, माओवादीहरूसित प्रशिक्षण लिइरहेको मात्र होइन मोर्चाले उत्तरबङ्गाललाई लिएर ग्रेटर नेपालको निम्ति आन्दोलन गरिरहेको अफवाह बङ्गाल सरकारका चौकीलोलुप नेताहरूले चलाइरहेको छ। 
एकातिर मोर्चा नेताहरूलाई पक्राउ गर्ने कुरा गरिरहेको छ भने अर्कोतिर सकेको जति सुरक्षाबललाई पहाड़ हुलिरहेको छ। आइजी रणबीर कुमारले मोर्चाको माओवादीसितको सॉंठगॉंठलाई ठाड़ो अस्वीकार गरिदिएको छ भने नेताहरूले भने आफ्नो ढिपी जारी राखेको छ। माकपाले आमरा बङ्गाली, जनजागरण मञ्च, राष्ट्रिय शिवसेना, बङ्गला भाषा बचाओ समितिहरूलाई मोर्चा विरूद्ध तैनाथ गरेको छ अनि उनीहरूले मोर्चालाई राष्ट्रविरोधी बनाउनको निम्ति विभिन्न कार्यकर्महरू पनि गरिरहेको छ। सिब्सु घटनाको दोष सम्पूर्णरूपले मोर्चालाई खन्याएर माकपा सरकारले आफ्नो कार्यअसक्षमतालाई यता अझ स्पष्ट पारेको छ, किन भने कुनै छानबिन विना नै मोर्चालाई आरोप लगाएर घटनाको राजनैतिक फाइदा लिने कोशिष गरिरहेको छ।
माकपाको यो चलखेलको विरुद्धमा तृणमूल, कंग्रेस र अन्य दलहरूले आवाज बारम्बार उठाइरहेकै छ। सिब्सु काण्डपछि आक्रोशित मानिसहरूले सरकारी सम्पति नष्ट गरेको सम्बन्धमा पनि मोर्चालाई नै दोष दिइएको छ भने मोर्चाका शीर्ष नेताहरूको विरूद्धमा प्राथमिकी पनि दर्ता भइसकेको छ। पुलिस प्रशासनले दोषीहरूलाई कार्वाही हुने बताउँदै प्राथमिकीमा नाम भएकाहरूलाई पक्राउ गर्न सक्ने बताइरहेको छ। पहाड़मा यसैकारण शैन्यबललाई तैनाथ गरिएको छ भने  सुरक्षा बलले गाउँगाउँमा छापा मारिरहेको छ। यसप्रकारको पुलिसी कार्यले मानिसहरू त्रस्त छन्‌।  यता मोर्चालाई चीनसित पनि जोड़िने कार्य भइरहेको छ। 
यी सबैभित्र मोर्चालाई राष्ट्रविरोधी बनाएर विधानसभामा फाइदा लिने नियत लुकेको स्पष्ट छ। यता यतिविघ्न भइसक्दा पनि पहाड़का अन्य दलहरू दुलो पसेका छन्‌। जब कि यतिबेला नै हो दलीय एकताको बेला। क्रामाकपा बाहेक कुनै पनि दलले बङ्गाल सरकारको पुलिसले गोर्खाहरूलाई गोलीठोकेको सम्बन्धमा समेत कुनै टिप्पणी गरेको छैन। उता सिक्किम सरकारको पक्षबाट भने यस घटनाको कठोररुपले भर्त्सना जनाइएको छ। यति बेला मोर्चालाई अगणतान्त्रिक बनाउने अनि राष्ट्रविरोधी बनाउने षड़यन्त्रबाट मोर्चालाई बँचाउन जुरूरी देखिएको छ। किन भने मुद्दा राष्ट्रविरोधी होइन। यहीबेला हो मुद्दाको आधारबारे सबैलाई बलियोरूपले बताउने बेला। अब हेर्नुछ, पहाड़का दलीय चलखेल मुद्दा बचाउको निम्ति कस्तो देखिने हो।
Trinamool has links with GJM, says Biman Bose
TT, KOLKATA: With tensions brewing in the Darjeeling hills and the Dooars in the plains of north Bengal, West Bengal Left Front chairman Biman Bose alleged here on Friday that the Trinamool Congress maintains links with those responsible for violence in the hills.
“The GJM [Gorkha Janmukti Morcha] is playing with fire. Such a force must be receiving encouragement from both national and international quarters, otherwise it would not have been so bold,” Mr. Bose said.
He compared the relations between the Trinamool and GJM with the alleged ties between the State's main Opposition party and the Maoists in the Jangalmahal region.
Referring to the current turbulence in Darjeeling district after the February 8 violence, the leader said whereas attempts at creating conflict in the hills were seen in the past, this time they had descended to the plains in the Dooars.
‘Position shifted'
Mr. Bose pointed out that the GJM had shifted its position from the time discussions were held about holding elections for the interim council after the Assembly polls.
On the Left Front rally to be held in the city on February 13, Mr. Bose said the number of persons attending it may surpass the numbers at all others.
Apologising for the inconvenience it may cause, he suggested that people travelling that day leave early for the airport and railway stations as traffic snarls are likely.
However, Mr. Bose assured that arrangements will be made so that emergency vehicles, such as ambulances, will be allowed to pass.
He also alleged that the Trinamool, at times on its own, at times with the Maoists and at others with the Congress, was responsible for the violence, terror and lawlessness currently being witnessed in the State.
The issue will feature prominently in the rally, he said.
BJP to go by majority opinion in hills
PTI, Delhi: BJP will support the majority opinion in the hills and this has been the party's consistent stand, leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj said today.
"BJP will not be against the majority opinion. Whatever is the wish of the majority of people in the hills, we will go by that," Swaraj told reporters after a public meeting here, in the West Midnapore district.
Swaraj said her comments were in conformity with the BJP poll manifesto during Lok Sabha elections, which had clearly spelt out the party's stance on the issue, as BJP believed in democratic norms.
BJP MP Jaswant Singh, who represents Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat, had been elected as an independent candidate supported by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) during the 2009 elections and was later reinstated in the saffron party.
Speaking about price rise and corruption, Swaraj blamed both the CPI(M) and Trinamool Congress for "supporting the successive UPA governments in 2004 and 2009 respectively."
"Both the Marxists and Trinamool are to be blamed for allowing this UPA government to lead the country to ruin in two phases of its rule," she said at the rally while lampooning Trinamool "for not raising its voice against black money and scams rocking the nation now".
Turning to the law and order situation in West Bengal, Swaraj said both Marxists and Trinamool had aided miscreants to let loose reign of terror in different parts of state including 'jangalmahal' (jungle belt of three south Bengal districts dominated by Maoists).
"Both the CPI(M) and Trinamool aided Maoists and allowed their growth and now the situation has got to such a violent phase," Swaraj rued.
