Jan Andolan Party to file FIR against 3 Gorkha Janamukti Morcha

Kalimpong: President of newly-launched Jan Andolan party Harka Bahadur Chhetri today said that he will lodge an FIR against Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) chief Bimal Gurung, new Morcha member R Moktan and Anuradha Pradhan for issuing an "open threat" to JAP.

Chhetri told a press meet that Gurung had asserted at a Morcha meeting on Thursday last that JAP would exist for one and half months, which Chhetri considered to be an "open threat. " "What does it mean... he can hire a person to kill us? He used the word 'kuincha' which means it will not last long. We are feeling threatened.

R Moktan told 'Janta le Chodaina' that too is a threat and Anuradha Pradhan told 'Nangojar Parchu'-- all these terms used in mela ground by Morcha members are threats and we have decided to file an FIR against all three of them", Chhetri said.

The JAP, he said, has sent a memorandum to Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Home secretary R Singh to act against, what he termed as the "anti national statement" of Bimal Gurung who had reportedly said that Kalimpong is a part of Bhutan and that it is not yet fully integrated into Indian territory.

Chhetri, a former GJM leader and Kalimpong MLA, on Wednesday had announced formation of the Jan Andolan Party. The formation of JAP assumes significance as it comes ahead of the Assembly polls.
