Have you heard about a padyatra from Darjeeling to Gangtok on the Sikkim-Darjeeling merger issue being organised by the Gorkha Rashtriya Congress? Saw the cadres with their leader Dawa Bomzan at Das Studio yesterday. They were out "shopping" for donations towards the march.
Heard Bomzan argue that it was stupid of Ajay Dahal and his men to kill a panchayat member. "If they are really about terrorism they should have instead bumped off a Sikkim minister and not one petty panchayat member. Imagine the impact then! In Bengal there have been so many political murders - including that of sitting DGHC councillors - that it has little effect."
The man has hungry looks; leaders with hungry looks are an unsettling sight. They recall crocs, and the tears those creatures shed in our name!
