BJP plans for Dooars growth

Posted by Ramesh Khati on June 26, 2009

Siliguri, Jun. 25: The BJP will focus on development work in the Dooars which it feels has been totally neglected like the hills by the Left Front government.

“The Left Front government has adopted a lackadaisical approach towards development in these two regions. The BJP has taken into account the lack of adequate infrastructure in the Dooars and will work towards implementing development projects there,” BJP spokesperson Rajeev Pratap Rudy told journalists today.

The move comes at a time when the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha has failed to create a base in the Dooars.

Echoing Rudy, Morcha central committee member Amar Lama said: “We are sympathetic to the tribals… There are various political reasons which have kept us apart. But they, too, have started realising that their socio-economic condition will not improve unless they unite with us.”
