Warning of a very ‘intense’ movement in the hills if Telangana is carved and Darjeeling is not, Gorkhaland Janamukti Morcha (GJM) general secretary Roshan Giri accused West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee of violating the terms of a tripartite agreement.

“The agreement was signed after placing the demand for Gorkhaland on record. Now what does she mean by saying Darjeeling is an integral part of West Bengal?” Giri asked.

A tripartite agreement between the GJM, state and the Centre was signed on in July, 2012, which provided for an elected Gorkhaland Territorial Administration, with more powers.
