TMC Wins 6 Seats in Mirik to form Board
Heralding change, TMC has won 6 out of 9 seats in Mirik Municipality and is set to form Board. GJM could only win 3 seats.
With this victory TMC has created history in the hills by becoming the first state party to win a local body elections after 1986 Gorkhaland agitation.
People's rejection of GJM in Mirik is also indicative of the anger towards failed GJM leadership in Mirik and the positive politics of promised land rights and administrative devolution in the form of Mirik sub-division by the Trinmool government.
