Siliguri, Feb. 27: The DGHC will be brought under the north Bengal development department, minister Gautam Deb said today.
He also said his department would extend its expertise to the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration once it was formed and replaced the DGHC. “We don’t want to differentiate between the plains and the hills for development,” Deb said.
The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha appeared surprised at Deb’s announcement. Party general secretary Roshan Giri said: “This is something new. We are striving for self-rule and what is the need to bring the DGHC under some new arrangement?” Courtesy:TheTelegraph.
