General Elections 2019: BJP has promised to look into our Gorkhaland demand, says Gorkha Janamukti Morcha leader Bimal Gurung

Updated : April 14, 2019 12:31 PM IST

The BJP, which is eyeing a third straight term in Darjeeling, has made no mention of statehood in its manifesto, but assured a "permanent political solution" in the Hills and scheduled tribe tags for eleven Gorka communities.
For the first time in about three decades, the demand for a separate Gorkhaland has not figured in the list of poll issues in Darjeeling as parties, including the local GJM and GNLF, have sought development and democracy in the region.
