BJP not aiming to divide Bengal by seeking to form Gorkhaland

Posted by Ramesh Khati on April 17, 2009

Kolkata ,  The BJP today denied the charge by its political opponents that West Bengal would be divided if the separate state of Gorkhaland is formed when the lotus party is elected to power.
“We are not dividing Bengal. North Bengal was neglected for long. Many groups are spearheading movements on various demands in North Bengal and no one is bothered about it. Our party feels that if anybody raises any demand within the framework of Indian constitution, they should be heard,”the party&aposs national spokesperson, S S Ahluwalia, told reporters here.

The BJP, which has fielded its senior leader Jaswant Singh from Darjeeling, would also sympathetically consider the Kamtapuris&aposdemand for inclusion of their language in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution, he said.
