Gorkha Janmukti Morcha to be alert along India-China border
Darjeeling, Sep 15: Consequent to the reports about Chinese troops trespassing into the Indian territory, Bimal Gurung, chief of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) asserted that his party would form a special force to remain alert along the India-China border to keep away any kind of foreign intrusion.
Addressing a gathering here on Monday, Gurung said that the special force would be named as the Saheed Durga Malla Special Force, for which they would seek the federal government's assistance.
"The problem faced by India at present...the incursion by China, for that we the Gorkha community, who have been in the service of the country for years ... if China attacks India, then the GJM will on its part form a special force named as Saheed Durga Malla, which would send 500 cadres if a war breaks out," Gurung added.
Officials sources have said that Chinese troops entered nearly 1.5 kilometres into the Indian territory near Mount Gya, which is recognised as the international border by India and China, and painted the word 'China' in Cantonese on the boulders and rocks there with red spray paint.
The incursions were reported from the area generally referred in the Chumar sector in east of Leh.
