He assured the people that he would fulfill the 31 issues in 23 months as he had assured while campaigning during the elections. The list includes land documents, minimum wages and appointments in vacant posts. “We had also talked about a permanent solution to the Gorkha impasse. In the next few days, we will have a meeting with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata where we will raise this issue. Though I lost in the election I will live up to my commitment for the betterment of the Hills,” added Tamang. He stated that the GJM (Binay faction) will continue being an ally of the TMC and will continue working in close coordination with the state Government. Regarding the Opposition parties, mainly the GNLF’s demand that GJM leaders, including present Chairman Anit Thapa should also resign from the GTA as they do not have the mandate, Tamang stated: “It is a state subject and the state will decide. However in the DGHC, GNLF President Late Subash Ghising was an administrator appointed by the state government from 2004 to March 2008.” Meanwhile, the GNLF has demanded that the state government dissolve the Board of Administrators in the GTA. “Till a political solution is not worked out the government can run the GTA through bureaucrats, we have no problems with this. The Board of Administrators has to be immediately dissolved as the recent elections show that they have no mandate,” stated Ajoy Edward, GNLF leader. When asked on what the permanent political solution should be Edward stated: “We will accept nothing less than 6th Schedule Status. It could be Union Territory or a separate state. Binay Tamang who is talking of Gorkhaland should apprise the Chief Minister about the Hill people’s aspiration in Gorkhaland. He should also work for it.” Incidentally the BJP, GNLF and GJM (Bimal faction) coalition has won both the Lok Sabha and Assembly by-polls in Darjeeling.
