Darjeeling, 24 Apr:

Former leader of Akhil Bharatiya Gorkha League, SP Sharma along with his team launched a new political party called Bharitya Gorkha Suraksha Parishad (BGSP) in Darjeeling today.

Mr Sharma along with some others had resigned from Akhil Bharatiya Gorkha League recently.

"Our party flag consists of three colours; orange, white and green, same as the national flag but in the middle we have kept marigold as the symbol of our community instead of Ashok Chakra. We welcome everyone who thinks that our party will do something for our community because our party is "of the people, by the people, for the people," said Mr Sharma while speaking to the media today.

He informs that his party believes in thinking big and starting small.

"Our first step as a party will be to meet the officials of Darjeeling regarding the GTA elections because we feel that the work which has not been done for years has to be done and then they can conduct the GTA elections. We will request BJP and their allies to ask their central command about permanent political solution for the hills before the arrival of the Home Minister in Darjeeling or else we will be forced to stage a protest when he arrives here," stated Mr Sharma.
