Quotes

"The Gorkhaland Territorial Administration is working to look after the families of the martyrs" the leader said
"After reports of deaths due to starvation in tea gardens, the government has admitted to the serious problems faced by tea garden workers. The Trinamul union is demanding a hike of Rs 206, but this will not solve the workers’ plight. There should be a system as defined in the minimum wages for the tea industry along with other benefits" Jia Ul Alam, the general secretary of the CPIM-affiliated Majdoor Union, said
...president Nima Lama said DGHC may be a small autonomous body but it is bigger and better than the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA). "The DGHC has a constitutional guarantee and only through such a constitution framed autonomous body can one obtain guaranteed security" he added
"This is not the day, venue and event to make political speeches. I will make political speeches in the days to come" Mr Ghisingh told his supporters
