Don't resort to violence, have dialogue: HM to GJM protesters

Eyewitness said security personnel initially fired tear gas shells to disperse the GJM protestors pelting stones at them, and later resorted to firing after the protest turned violent.

The fresh clashes in Darjeeling over Gorkhaland statehood movement has claimed the lives of three people - a security personnel and two supporters of the GJM at the city's Singmari area. They are using arms, throwing bombs and indulging in vandalism in such a way.

"They are using the national flag for vandalism, which they can not do".

"I wonder how the supply line will get normal if trouble persists. There should be an end to it".

"Mamata sees conspiracy in everything".

Rajnath Singh on Sunday appealed to people of affected region to remain calm and maintain peace.

London tower block fire: Death toll climbs to 30
Speaking to media outside the West London building site, Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said , "The fire was truly horrific".

The federal government of India has urged the West Bengal government and Gorkhaland protesters to hold peaceful dialogue to resolve the situation.

For the second successive time this week miscreants struck at the dead of the night to vandalise and ablaze government properties around Darjeeling as the demand for a separate state continued to roil the hill station.

The GJM, which is also an ally of the NDA government at the Centre, is looking forward to the Central government for a positive intervention in the matter.

The committee will convey to the people chief minister's message that the government is willing to sit for talks once the strike is called off, he added.

"We said (at that time) kindly examine the merits of the case individually".

The Morcha responded by calling a 12-hour bandh on Sunday in the Dooars, home to several tea gardens.

Banerjee, who chaired a high level meet at the state secretariat in Nabanna of the various development boards of the hills, said an all-party meeting will be held in Siliguri on June 22 to discuss the growing unrest in the hills.

When asked about Ahluwalia backing the agitation and whether BJP supported it, Shah said,"It is true that we are in favor of small states".

West Bengal head Mamata Banerjee had insinuated on Saturday that the struggle for a separate state was fuelled by insurgent groups active in Northeast India and foreign elements.

"Police have found that they (the Morcha) have terrorist links. So, I believe now also the Gorkhaland issue has to be examined properly from its people's point of view", the MP from Nizamabad in Telangana told PTI. I am refraining from naming them to maintain secrecy.

In other incidents of violence, GJM supporters allegedly pelted stones and lobbed petrol bombs at the residence of Trinamool activist Deoraj Gurung in Lebong Cart Road, attacked a local Trinamool activist's residence at Pankhabari, and reportedly set a PWD office at Bijonbari on fire.

Banerjee had stated that: "This is a terrorist movement".
