New Delhi: The Central Government has given its go-ahead for creation of Gorkhaland Territorial Administration - an autonomous body that will have greater administrative powers than the existing Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council.
The decision has been taken after the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) meeting and Home Minister P Chidambaram has been directed to go to Kolkata to sign the agreement with the concerned parties.
The members of the West Bengal government, the Centre and the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJM) are expected to sign the agreement on Monday.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met with GJM president Bimal Gurung and other top party leaders on Sunday in this regard.
The Left has decided to stay away from the event saying the deal will spark violence and pave the way for the formation of the separate state of Gorkhaland.
