New rules on cattle trade rattle Punjab farmers
Farmers and cattle traders in Punjab, who are yet to recover from the losses caused by the Central government’s demonetisation, are fearing yet another period of distress following the new rules on prevention of cruelty to animals framed by the Centre.
The Centre has called for tripartite talks with West Bengal and the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) on June 19 to end the current phase of violence in the hill district of Darjeeling. The GJM, however, on Thursday told Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh that it would participate in the talks only if its demand for a separate State for the Gorkhas was addressed.

If this happens, an address is made to the President for the removal of the judge.
Centre’s help sought The GJM also sought the Centre’s intervention to bring back peace in the district and “foil” the State government’s attempt to make Bengali mandatory in schools. The State government has requested the Centre to postpone the talks. GJM general secretary Roshan Giri, who met Mr. Singh here, was accompanied by BJP MP from Darjeeling S.S. Ahluwalia. “We have apprised the Home Minister of the prevailing situation in Darjeeling and the Mamata Banerjee government’s attempts to impose Bengali in the district-based schools. We have urged him for immediate Central intervention to bring back peace there,” Mr. Giri said after the meeting. Mr. Giri said the GJM would not participate in the June 19 tripartite meeting to discuss issues related to the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration and would talk only about a separate State.
