Kolkata, July 12: Four years back, when the Hill Queen Darjeeling was under a strike, Calcutta High Court declared the strike in the hill as illegal. But again as the Gorkhaland issue woke up in the last month, Morcha called for an indefinite shutdown in Hill. It has been 26 days the normal life is totally devastated in the area. Now the Judge of Calcutta High Court slammed the authority for its inability to stop the strike. What Bengal government has done so far, that has been asked to state to inform the court.

The division bench of Nisitha Mitra and Tapobrato Chakrobartee is wondered with the inactive attitude to stop the strike. The common mass in Darjeeling is facing a lot of problems due to this indefinite shutdown. High Court has also questioned the development of Madan Tamang case.

Whereas Bengal CM yesterday affirmed about to establish peace in the hill area soon, Morcha has stuck to the idea of Strike only. Even Morcha leaders have warned of more intense protest with hunger strike till death. They have ordered chairman and vice-chairman of all boards to reign within 14th July. Otherwise, they will be perceived as anti-Gorkha.

 Regarding the deployment of CRPF in Hill, Centre, and state is still now having different opinions. Centre has rejected the idea to change force in the hill. Calcutta High Court judge has said, “The ruling party in the Centre and State is different. Common people are suffering for that. “

For using children in the protests, Child rights Commission in Bengal has again summoned Gurung. It has ordered him to be present on 31st July, otherwise legal steps will be taken against him.
