• Political Life Career Works of Subhash Ghisingh: - While a second-year B.A. student, GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh was arrested for participating in a political agitation against the poor conditions of the hills. GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh then had to quit studies. GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh was then the general secretary of Tarun Sangh. It was the beginning of a long political career. In 1968, Ghisingh was vocal on issues concerning the hills and formed a political outfit, Nilo Jhanda, to further the cause. On 22nd April 1979, for the first time, GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh raised the demand for a separate state for the Nepali-speaking people of the Darjeeling hills. On 5th April 1980, GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh demanded the formation of Gorkhaland, a separate state for the Gorkhas within India. GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh formed the Gorkha National Liberation Front to achieve statehood. After a prolonged struggle marked by much bloodshed, on 22nd August 1988, GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh signed an agreement with the state and the central governments for the creation of the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council, a semi-autonomous body. In 1986, the Gorkhaland National Liberation Front under the leadership of GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh, having failed to obtain a separate regional administrative identity from Parliament, demanded a separate state of Gorkhaland. This statehood movement turned violent and was severely repressed by the West Bengal government. The disturbances almost totally shut down the Darjeeling district's economic mainstays of tea and tourism. The Left Front government of West Bengal, which earlier had supported some form of autonomy, now opposed it as "anti-national". The state government claimed that Darjeeling district was no worse off than the state in general and was richer than many districts. However, GNLF spoke of discrimination from the West Bengal administration towards the Gorkhas. After two years of violent agitation and the loss of at least 1,200 lives, the government of West Bengal and the central government of India agreed on granting a semi-autonomous administrative body to Darjeeling hills. In July 1988, the GNLF gave up its demand for a separate state, and in August 1988, the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council came into being. Ghisingh became its chairman after winning the first council elections. The council had authority over some economic development program, tourism and culture. Ghisingh remained the chairman of the DGHC for 20 years with his GNLF party winning the DGHC elections three times. The fourth DGHC elections were due in 2004. However, the government decided not to hold elections and instead made GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh the sole caretaker of the DGHC till the Sixth Schedule council was established. Most of the other political parties and organizations opposed the setting up of a Sixth Schedule Tribal Council as there was only a minority tribal population in the DGHC area. Resentment among the former councilors of DGHC also grew rapidly. Among them, Bimal Gurung, once the trusted aide of Ghisingh, decided to break away from the GNLF. Riding on a mass support for Prashant Tamang, an Indian Idol candidate from Darjeeling in 2007, Bimal quickly capitalized on the public support GNLF Leader Politician Subhash Ghisingh received for supporting Prashant, and was able to overthrow Ghisingh from the seat of power. Ghisingh resigned from the chairmanship of the DGHC in March 2008 and shifted residence to Jalpaiguri. GNLF Party lost most of its support and cadres to Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, a new party headed by Bimal Gurung.

Just before 2011 Assembly Election in West Bengal Subhash Ghishing once again back to his land and got huge positive response from his supporters. Let’s wait for upcoming steps taken by GNLF Party Leader Subhash Ghisingh in North Bengal.
