Kalimpong, 11 Oct:
Chairperson of the recently formed Board of Administrators (BoA) for the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration, Binay Tamang, arrived in Kalimpong today to a warm welcome from the people.
He addressed the public here at Deolo for the first time since the suspension of bandh in the hills.
Mr Tamang alleged that GJM chief, Bimal Gurung, had hired people from the Indo-Nepal border to have him killed. He said that he had heard recordings from the tapping done by the police which led him to keep police security at his residence.
He accused seven persons from the morcha for derailing the Gorkhaland agitation. He refused to name all of them, but said that Roshan Giri was one of them.
Speaking about the first bipartite meeting, Mr Tamang said that it was a good gesture of Bengal Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee to say that she respected the constitutional demand of Gorkhaland.
