Tripartite meeting on Oct 12 called for Darjeeling's PPS, not GTA : Raju Bista

Siliguri, 09th October: Darjeeling MP Raju Bista arrived at Bagdogra Airport from Delhi this morning and spoke on the tripartite meeting called by the Ministry of Home Affairs on October 12 at 4 pm. Maintaining that the meeting has been called for a permanent solution for Darjeeling Hills, he hoped the meeting will be very successful.

Taking a jibe at some of the leaders of the hills, the MP said that the meeting has been called by the Ministry of Home Affairs not for GTA but for a permanent political solution' to the pending issues in the Darjeeling Hills, Siliguri, Terai and Dooars.

"In this meeting, only those people have been called who believe in the Indian Constitution and truly want a political permanent solution for the problems of Darjeeling as per the Constitution. I don't think it is necessary to invite individuals who are only interested in the chair of GTA," MP Bista stated.

Furthermore, the MP took a dig at Mamata Banerjee and congratulated her for "legally" becoming the Chief Minister of the state by contesting the election of MLA twice.

On his way to the hills, the MP received a warm welcome in Kurseong where a large number of leaders and supporters from BJP's alliance partners lead by Nima Lama and BJP team lead by Tulsi Maskey gathered.

Further taking to Twitter, the MP tweeted, "It always feels great to come back home to the crisp Dasain air and a sunny weather. I thank Kurseong MLA Sh. BP Bajgain, and other District BJP and BJYM leaders for their warm welcome. Had the opportunity to answer a few questions posed by the press."
