Gurung has vehemently condemned the incident and has dubbed it as a "conspiracy by the West Bengal Government, Binay Tamang and Anit Thapa."

"It is a conspiracy to derail Gorkhaland. Dilip Ghosh had come to Darjeeling to survey the ground reality before our meeting with the Union Government. In order to foil this Tamang sent drunk men and roughed up the BJP leader" alleged Gurung.

"The BJP leaders hurt public sentiment. This is the fallout of that. Dilip Ghosh in Kalimpong had stated that Gorkhaland cannot be created for 15 lakh people. This has hurt the public sentiment and they protested. However I vehemently condemn the incident and demand that all involved should be brought to book" stated Tamang.

Meanwhile the police sources stated that the road leading to Patleybash area, the one time Gurung stronghold has been dug up in two places to prevent vehicles from running on the road.
