Siliguri, 16th December: The return of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) President and founder Bimal Gurung in Bengal after being into hiding for over 03 years and him breaking ties with the BJP and allying with the TMC has boiled up the political scenario across the state.
While the GJM leader has joined hands with the ruling party Trinamool Congress for the upcoming election, a section of the society is not happy with his return and have now started opposing the State.
Likewise, a number of protestors demonstrated against the Trinamool Congress government at Siliguri's Hashmi Chowk (Venus More) on Wednesday. Although the protest was not staged under the banner of any political party or organization, however, CPI (M) leader Shankar Ghosh was actively present in the said demonstration.
The protesters mainly questioned the state for allowing Bimal Gurung, who has been charged with numerous cases, carry out political activities in the region, especially under police protection.
In addition to this, the protesters demanded TMC and BJP to stop playing with the emotions of the people of the Darjeeling Hills for their political motives. They claimed that the unity of the Hills and Plains is strong.
