|Posters criticising Bimal Gurung in Kalimpong - Kalimnews|
A similar poster was also put up in Darjeeling’s Chowk Bazar, according to the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, but was taken down quickly.
The Kalimpong posters, written in Nepali and signed by “janata”, said: “Bimal Gurung and other intellectuals who have sent their wards to study abroad, but are spoiling the future of ordinary people by forcing them into agitation, be warned. People awake and come forward to secure the future of the students….
“Gurung must answer why he chose to keep mum when other GTA executive members from Kalimpong and Kurseong were arrested and called an indefinite strike when Binay Tamang was arrested. Is the indefinite strike for Tamang or Gorkhaland?”
The posters have surfaced days before Mamata Banerjee’s planned trip to Kalimpong where she would be felicitated by the Lepchas.
The Morcha said the posters were the handiwork of anti-Gorkhaland activists.
Jyoti Kumar Rai, an assistant secretary of the Morcha, said: “The fact that posters with the same contents were plastered in Kalimpong and Darjeeling is a clear indication that they were not plastered by janata but by an organised network of anti-Gorkhaland
