Centre asks Bengal govt to resolve Gorkhaland issue

June 25, 2008
The Centre has thrown the ball in the state's court on the Gorkhaland issue.

The government made it clear on Tuesday that it was ready to consider a proposal, if the West Bengal government comes up with it.

A delegation led by Gorkha Jana Mukti Morcha General Secretary Roshan Giri met Junior Interior Minister Sri Prakash Jaiswal in New Delhi.

Gorkhas, the ethnic Nepalis, are demanding a separate Gorkhaland to be carved out of West Bengal.
