DDUDF spokesperson P Arjun - Bharatia Gorkha Parisangh  president Enos Das Pradhan
As the West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee bifurcate Jaipaiguri and  introduced Alipurduar Bengal's 20th district, BJP Bengal chief Rahul Sinha expressed satisfaction over the new district Alipurduar and has demand more such smaller districts such as Asansol, Burdwan and Burdwan (E). Hooghly should be bifurcated into Hooghly and Arambagh. Keeping in mind the deteriorating law and order situation and administrative setback in Siliguri, it will be good to separate it from Darjeeling,” said state BJP chief Rahul Sinha.

Rahul Sinha's statement of Darjeeling - Siliguri bifurcation evokes mixed response in the Darjeeling Hills:

In this connection Darjeeling Dooars United Development Foundation (DDUDF) spokesperson P Arjun wrote in his Facebook Account:

Seeds of Bifurcation - P.Arjun

WB State BJP President Rahul Sinha has demanded the bifurcation of Siliguri subdivision from Darjeeling District following the creation of the new distrisct Alipurduar. Infact, the seeds of bifurcation of Siliguri from Darjeeling district was sown in 1988 following the formation of Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council. The formation of Siliguri Mahakuma Parishad in 1988 was the begining of a well planned political strategy by the Bengal Govt. to prepare the infrastructure for a new Siliguri Dictrict. Consequently, the territories to be incorporated in the proposed State of Gorkhaland will gradually shrink from both ends beginning from Alipurduar and later on Siliguri, eventually leading to the decimation of the demand for Gorkhaland.

In such a predicament, will GJMM President Bimal Gurung wait for the outcome of 2017 Bengal assembly elections or immediately persuade the Central BJP leadership to initiate the process for the formation of the State of Gorkhaland.

Accordingly Bharatia Gorkha Parisangh (BGP) president Enos Das Pradhan also write: -

GTA agreement confirmed Seeds of Bifurcation of Darjeeling - Enos Das Pradhan

The BGP ( Bharatia Gorkha Parisangh)  president Enos Das Pradhan on the bifurcation Siliguri from Darjeeling district said that with the GTA  (Gorkhaland Territorial Administration) settlement the separation was on the card.

The seed of separation was not shown in 1988, it was rather confirmed in 1988 and reconfirmed when GTA agreement was signed in 2011. GJM further fueled this exercise by demanding only Gorkha dominated areas in Siliguri, Dooars and Terai. Darjeeling District, Terai and Doors are the integral part of our proposed separate state of Gorkhaland. The process of separating Siliguri from the mainline of Darjeeling District was initiated long back by late Siddartha Shankar Ray, who created an useless body like Hill Development Council in connivance with the local leaders, then. 

When Gorkha chelis were dancing with Alluwalia the other day in Chowrasta it reminded me of the scene when our chellis were dancing with Siddartha and Maya. Since then all District level offices were shifted to Siliguri. Darjeeling slowly lost the character of the district headquarter and there was no voice raised. The process of formation of the separate state of Gorkhaland must therefore begin now and we cannot afford to wait till 2017. Separation of Siliguri from Darjeeling District is an hidden agenda of the BJP to say no to Gorkhaland. We must ask BJP and the party who supported BJP during the last Lok Sabha election to explain their intention. Are they serious and sincere about our demand of separate state of Gorkhaland?
