Gorkha Janamukti Morcha president Bimal Gurung has said the party has decided to go on an indefinite strike from Monday demanding a separate state of ‘Gorkhaland’.    “We will go on strike from Monday. The Bengal government takes so much revenue from us but it only encroach our territory. We want our Gorkahland and will not negotiate on this matter. We will not do any violence. We have also written to Home Minister Rajnath Singh apprising him as to how West Bengal suppresses us,” Gurung said.    GJM general secretary Roshan Giri said that an all-party meeting has been called on June 13 to discuss the matter.    “Offices of Gorkhaland Territorial Administration, Bengal government and central government will be closed from Monday. Court will be open. Banks will be open on Monday and Thursday. School and colleges have been exempted from bandh.   “We have appealed to all to put up all signboards in Darjeeling, Kerseong, Kalimpong, Mirik and other places in Nepali and English,” Giri said.    He further said a delegation will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister demanding a Gorkhaland state. : 11th.
