GNLF to organize Banbo Utsav to press for Sixth Schedule status.
MIRIK 12 Jan 2014:Gorkha Nationa Liberation Front will organize a program named “Banbo Utsav” on January 15 at Namsu Gammon Bridge near Bunkulung Busty as a party policy to press for Sixth Schedule status. The responsibility to host the festival has been shouldered by the Kurseong branch committee of GNLF.
Kurseong committee convener Nima Lama said, “We belong to a tribal community and the function is being held to prove this fact.” He said currently the politics of dividing Gorkha community into sub-communities is dominating the hills. “Under this situation we must unite to prove ourselves as tribals. Only sixth schedule status can free us from current problems” he observed.
