DARJEELING, 28th JANUARY 2018: Mann Ghisingh, President, Gorkha National Liberation Front (GNLF) has said that the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) should be run by Govenrment Administrators until final solution is reached in the Hills. He was speaking to media personnel on the sidelines of the party meeting in Darjeeling today.
He said that the administrative boards such as Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council (DGHC) and Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) had been failures and that there was no reason that the hill parties should indulge in the same.
When asked how was the party’s demand for Sixth Schedule status working out. Ghisingh said that the movement for the Sixth Schedule status was moving ahead nicely and was being well received. He said that when the GTA or such administrative boards were nullifed the board that the party is presently in the helm of would also logically be nullified.
Ghisingh said that since the Sixth Schedule status was ratified by the State Government they should acknowledge it once again.
