Darjeeling (WB): In the wake of growing demand to carve Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) is preparing to renew the issue of Gorkhaland in West Bengal. GJM leaders are keenly awaiting the outcome of Friday’s Congress Core Group meeting.
    
"If Friday's meeting decides in favour of a separate state of Telangana, then the government should also create a separate state of Gorkhaland as it has been demanded for the past 100 years," GJM general secretary Roshan Giri said on Thursday.
    
He further said, "If not, then we will start the Gorkhaland agitation and come to the streets."
    
GJM senior leadership led by party chief Bimal Gurung held a meeting at Gorkha Rangmanch Bhawan in Darjeeling where they discussed about their future strategy and the need of Gorkhaland.
