All the elected members of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA), including its chief executive Bimal Gurung, resigned today from the administrative body in the trouble-hit Darjeeling hills with the GJM vowing to intensify the stir for a separate state.
All 12 parties operating in the Hills, which took part in GJM sponsored June 22 meeting in the hills, have already chose to boycott the government sponsored all-party meeting, which is to be presided by state home secretary.
He said the GTA has been turned into a "farce" by the West Bengal government and the GJM and the people of the hills will fight for the single agenda of a separate Gorkhaland. The formation of GTA came after five years of intense agitation.
Giri had stated on Thursday, "We have made a decision to resign from the GTA".
Except pharmacies, all other shops, hotels and restaurants have been remained closed for the past 11 days.The GJM is seeking Central government intervention saying it will only hold talks with the Union government.The all-party meeting also demanded immediate withdrawal of all para-military forces.

Sikkim's ruling party SDF on Thursday also passed a resolution, supporting the Gorkhaland demand, at an event chaired by Chamling. "I can only say other states should not interfere in the internal matters of this one".
