Bengal to form panel on Gorkha council

Kolkata, June 16 - West Bengal will form a three-member fact-verification panel to look into the recommendations of a high-powered committee on the issue of area demarcation in a proposed Gorkhaland hill council, after the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) rejected them.

The GJM has demanded 398 additional mouzas (area less than a sub-division) to be included in the proposed hill council - Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) in north Bengal hills - but the Justice Shyamal Sen committee said only five mouzas could form a part of it.

Upset over its report, the GJM representatives Saturday met Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and expressed their reservations on it.

"We have demanded a rejection of the Shyamal Sen committee report. This report is a humiliation for us. The chief minister has said that a fact verification committee will be formed headed by a secretary of the state government to look into the report of the committee," said GJM general secretary Roshan Giri.

The committee was set up July 29, 2011 after the GJM demanded 398 additional mouzas spread over Darjeeling and Jalpaiguri districts to be included in the GTA -- the new hill council that would run the administration in Darjeeling area.

The committee, which considered parameters such as homogeneity (whether over 50 percent of the mouza's population was Gorkha), geographical contiguity, compactness and ground reality, said only five mouzas - two in Jalpaiguri district and three in Darjeeling district - fulfilled all the criteria for being part of the GTA.
