West Bengal BJP State President, Mr. Dilip Ghosh came to Siliguri for a visit to hills so as to confirm the people of hills to stay by their side as they recently met with the hurdles of their movement for the Gorkhaland. He was received by Mr. Abhijit Roy Choudhury, General Secretary of Siliguri District BJP, at New Jalpaiguri station (NJP). Mr. Ghosh said that it has been 4 months the hills had met with the strike and agitation and since then no minister or other political leaders from plains had visited the hills so far and he is the first one to make a visit to hills from plains.
Mr. Ghosh said that the people of the hills are not happy with the recent changes in the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) made by the Trinamool Congress led West Bengal Government, and he also said that Binay Tamang, who has been appointed as the Chairman of GTA by the West Bengal Government is backstabbing the innocent lives of the hill peoples and is betraying them for the sake of his own profit. Lastly he quoted that he shall visit the families of the martyrs who were killed in action during the Gorkhaland movement and wish to stay by their family at least and give them a confidence and hope for their livelihood.
