“The Telangana Bill’s passage proves the consent of the state government is not necessary in remapping the concerned state’s boundaries. We had been stressing this all the while. The Centre will have to bifurcate West Bengal without the state government’s consent as has been done in the case of Telangana.” said Kumar Chamling the sub-divisional samiti secretary of the GJM kalimpong.
He added the passage of the T-Bill in the Lok Sabha strengthens the demand for Gorkhaland as it has supported the formation of the smaller state in India by doing so.The GJM has kept aside provisions for scrapping the GTA in the GTA accord and demanding a state.
