CALCUTTA: Union Minister Rajnath Singh, in the first official response from the agitation centre in Darjeeling, reminded protesters Sunday that “no one should resort to violence” and “all problems can be solved through Dialogue “.
The series of Singh tweets, which arrived 11 days after supporters of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha threw bombs at the Bengal Council of Minister’s headquarters in Darjeeling, followed by a half-hour conversation with the chief minister tomorrow Mamata Banerjee Sunday.
Calling for the elimination of violence may be part of the BJP’s strategy to distance itself from the attempt to dismember its Bengal ally.
The BJP an MP from Darjeeling, who won due to the support of GJM, but the rest of Bengal may not agree with kindness to the call of Gorkhaland, feels a cross section of BJP leaders in Bengal.
Banerjee has already joined the feeling of “pan-Bengal” with his statement “will not allow the division of Bengal, as long as I am alive” on Saturday. It is considered a successful effort to force the BJP to decide on the state issue. But the GJM has increased in advance.
MP of the Darjeeling Party, Amar Singh Rai, said: “I see no reason for us to enter into a dialogue only with the state government, we will enter into a dialogue with the center in a single program – a separate state of Gorkhaland “Rai, however, remained engaged in a tripartite dialogue.
The Trinamool Congress did not remain silent either. In a Facebook post, TMC’s national voice, Derek O’Brien, said: “If there is any doubt, dialogue works best as part of the Constitution, but before that, violence. the weapon “.
It was not without reason that Banerjee not only informed Singh “of the situation in Darjeeling” but also reminded him that in 2011 the GTA agreement – which the Center is also a signatory – GJM accepted to ensure peace in the region.
Singh said: “I spoke with the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, in the morning she informed me of the situation in Darjeeling I ask you people living in Darjeeling and neighbouring regions to stay .. quiet and peaceful. In a democracy like India, the use of violence will never contribute to a solution.
The problem can be resolved through mutual dialogue. All parties and stakeholders must resolve their differences and misunderstandings through dialogue in a friendly environment. ”
Emphasised the “environment-friendly” impression, BJP state management has chosen to offer its mediation services between the GJM and TMC.
