Meet on Gorkhaland Territorial Administration Act amendments

DARJEELING: The Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) executive members on Thursday adopted a resolution to make 29 amendments to the existing GTA Act to remove flaws that will be sent to the state government for approval.

After the four-hour meeting at Lalkothi, the GTA headquarters , executive member Roshan Girisaid: "The executive members adopted some resolutions. We have prioritized that the GTA Act needs to be amended because it has flaws that need to be corrected. We are doing this in accordance to the July 18, 2011, GTA agreement," said Giri. Though he refused to elaborate on the 29 amendments, Giri only said the issue of providing reservation to the SC/STs was one of them.
