GUWAHATI, Feb 20: Members of the Gorkha Autonomous Council Demand Committee (GACDC) staged a mass hunger strike at Lakhidhar Bora Khetra at Dighalipukhuripar in the city today in support of their demand for talks with the Assam Government. Members of various Gorkha organizations of the State took part in the agitation. The GACDC has all along been demanding of Dispur to hold talks with it so as to spell out in no uncertain terms on the issue of indigenousness of the Gorkhas living in Assam. The GACDC said that if Dispur does not make the issue clear within two days, they will call off their proposed bilateral talks with Dispur, and move the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister for tripartite talks.    Members of organizations like the Sadou Asom Mogor Sangha, Sadou Asom Gurung (Tumu) Sangha, Kirat Mohasammilan and others took part in the hunger strike today.
