Darjeeling: The GJM on Wednesday sought intervention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the Gorkhaland issue saying it was a political problem. The central government and the Prime Minister should intervene. It is not a law and order problem. It is a political problem. The people in the hills want Gorkhaland. If the people can get Telengana,why dont we get Gorkhaland? GJM general secretary Roshan Giri said.
Guv refuses to mediate
