Kolkata: The CPI(M) said the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) was engaged in undemocratic activities and was trying to destroy the unity between the people in the hills and the plains in West Bengal.

There was an immediate need for the GJM to sit with the State and the Centre to resolve the situation, it said.

In a statement on Saturday, CPI(M) West Bengal state committee chairman Biman Bose, said that for the last few days the GJM activists were carrying out activities which were tantamount to terrorising the people and targeting the Opposition parties, especially the CPI(M) leaders and workers. “CPI(M) offices were being attacked, furniture broken and flags and festoons shredded in Darjeeling, Kurseon and Mirik,” the statement said.

The houses of CPI(M) leaders and workers were being attacked and at times they were being threatened for their party links. Mr. Bose said that the GJM was persistently trying to bring disharmony among the people.
