The United Gorkha Revolutionary Front (UGRF), a Gorkha outfit, on Thursday threatened to 'hang' Gorkha Jan Mukti Morkha (GJM) negotiators if they failed to secure a separate Gorkhaland state at the December 21 tripartite talks with the Center.
"The GJM negotiators will be deemed as traitors and hanged in the event of their failure to usher in a separate state for the Gorkha people," the UGRF President Ajay Dahal said in a statement in Gangtok.
The Gorkha community is pinning its hope that their long standing aspiration for a separate state will be fulfilled at the talks, he said, adding creation of the Gorkhaland state will be a 'fitting tribute' to those pro-statehood supporters who have laid down their lives for the cause in the past decades.
Dahal also threatened to launch a militant struggle on the statehood demand in the wake of an unsatisfatory outcome at the crucial tripartite talks later this month.
