Nepalese migration to India. It is mainly happening in West Bengal's Darjeeling district and Dooars area of Jalpaiguri district. A surprising fact is when we meet Nepalese they refer them as Nepalese but when they go to Political sector then they refer themselves as Gurkha. These people came from Nepal and have vast difference with Bengalis in culture, Bengalis are generally a bit conservative, less wild in culture when these immigrants are wild in culture. Nepali Indian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia And this migration's result in demand in Gorkhaland, Gorkhaland is supposed to be state of people who are living in West Bengali's hill areas and have Gurkha ethnicity in addition these immigrants are taking job from Bengalis, many jobs such as security guard, Nurse etc are full with Nepalese people and people from North India, forcing Bengalis to quit West Bengal for South Indian states, these people dont speak Bengali language as a result Bengalis are becoming minority day by day in their own state. Gorkhaland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Now what is Gurkha? many call it an Nepalese tribe. Really? Gurkha is word that was used to refer British-Indian army's soldiers who are from Nepal. Any one able bodied Nepali can join Indian army and be a Gurkha soldier. So it is easy to understand supporters of Gurkhaland why use the term "Gurkha" instead of Nepalese, the state what they are claiming is actually for Nepalese, since every Nepalese is supposed to be Gurkha. Hence Nepaleseland this sounds not good(as Nepal is a foreign state) so they use the term Gurkha. So should this be allowed? What will happen to Bengali's and Bengali language who are becoming increasingly minority in their own state by Hindi speaking people and Nepalese?
