Some GJM activists were seen participating in the demonstration bare-chested and broke tube lights on their backs leading to injuries. Hundreds of GJM supporters burnt copies of the Gorkha Territorial Administration. The Centre, the state government and GJM had signed the GTA in 2011. GTA had three hill subdivisions Darjeeling, Kurseong and Mirik and some areas of Siliguri subdivision of Darjeeling district and the whole of Kalimpong district under its authority. GJM sources said that now there is no entity of GTA in the hills.
