Dimapur, May 24: The Gorkha Youth Association (GYA) Kohima held an emergency executive meeting at GPPK Hall Kohima on May 23.
During the meeting, GYA Kohima took strong offence against the use of derogatory words on the Nepali speaking community by Amazon’s web series Paatal Lok produced by actor Anushka Sharma. The use of such filthy words targeting the Nepali speaking community in any form and purpose is condemnable and not acceptable at all.
GYA Kohima also supported the petition of the Bhartiya Gorkha Yuva Parisangh addressed to Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting demanding immediate removal of the English subtitles and also muting the dirty words from the web series as it is a direct insult to the community and also degrades the Nepali speaking women.
Meanwhile, GYA Kohima has expressed grief at the sudden demise of Late Puspalata Sonar, w/o Late Monbir Sonar at Walford in Dimapur recently.
She was a motherly figure for many, who had also served the Gorkha community in Kohima in various capacities.
GYAK conveyed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and prayed that God grants strength and solace to them and also eternal peace to the departed soul. (Page News Service)
