Kalimpong: Darjeeling MP SS Ahluwalia sparked off new controversy on Independence Day supporting the demand of Gorkhland while speaking at an event on Independence Day.
At an event at Kalimpong, Ahluwalia said, “When will the people of Gorkhaland will be able the call them the residents of Gorkhaland?” The comment of Ahluwalia has placed the BJP in an embarrassing situation.
The relation of the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha is in a hot and cold state with the Trinamool Congress. Till now, BJP has not been able to fulfill their demands for which they supported the BJP in 2014 elections.
According to Morcha sources, many leaders are of the opinion of maintain good relation with the Trinamool Congress. There is also pressure on SS Ahluwalia who won the election with the support of the BJP. So now, it is a matter of question whether the BJP MP is issuing this statements on the pressure of Morcha or not.
