Gurung was an old lieutenant of Ghisingh in GNLF – in fact Ghisingh is considered to be Gurung’s mentor - before the former charted out his own course, forming the GJM on October 7, 2007 and bringing about the downfall of Ghisingh in hill politics.

Ghisingh is undergoing neurological treatment and is also suffering from an acute throat ailment. The GNLF chief returned home to the Darjeeling hills from exile in April of this year but confined himself at his Dr. Zakir Hussain Road residence and also refused to meet party supporters and indulge in political activities given his ailing condition.

He was admitted at the Delhi hospital after Diwali.

Gurung’s decision to visit Ghisingh comes in the wake of an appeal by the People’s Forum, a hill-based social organization, on Tuesday. The forum had cited Ghisingh’s contribution to the hills as a politician and also urged Gurung to meet the GNLF leader on humanitarian grounds.

Speaking on the sidelines of a programme held to induct GNLF supporters into his party, the GJM chief said, “I will go and meet Ghisingh on humanitarian grounds. I will also seek an update on his health condition and see how I may be able to help him.” Earlier too, Gurung had said he would visit the GNLF leader and extend support, if necessary.
