Sunday, 17 February 20130 comments

Darjeeling Feb 17: Normal life hit this hill town today with most of the establishment and shop shutting down in a bid to attend GJMrally in Kalimpong. The GJM nevertheless had not called for a shutdown but had asked all the transport unions and shops to attend the meet strictly.
As a result very few vehicles plied on the roads that left the commuters in a scurry. “Every organizations and associations affiliated to the party were asked to attend the meet. Hence the shops were closed for all the day and very few vehicles plied on the road that left the commuters in trouble,” said a shopkeeper.

Most of the tourists as well as locals who had plans to leave the town today had to cancel the tickets. As very few vehicles plied on the road it was impossible for the commuters to get a seat in the vehicles.

Bose opposes president rule in hills, blames Mamata for hill fiasco

Malda Feb 17: Left front chairman Biman Bose has opposed the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha’s demand for imposition of president rule in the state. “We are always against the intervention of Union government in state affairs. It’s our policy. We never support the demand of imposition for President’s rule wherever it is and whosoever demands it,” he said.

Bose was addressing a LF workers’ meeting in Malda College auditorium favoring the party’s candidate in English Bazaar by-poll. It was attended by a large number of LF supporters. 

Bose once again also ridiculed the claim of the chief minister Mamata Banerjee that the hill region was smiling. “It has been proved by now that hills are not smiling and so does the Jungal Mahal,” he said. He said, “Instead the people are laughing at the claim made by the chief minister.”

He further said that the chief minister has violated the election rules by replacing the commissioner of police RK Panchnanda. “It is a gross violation of the election rules. Even the state home secretary has raised objection in signing the file of the commissioner’s removal when the model code of conduct was in force. But the CM virtually forced him to sign the file,” Bose alleged.
