In a shocking instance, BJP MP from Assam, Ram Prasad Sarmah, has sought the Union government’s intervention regarding the creation of Gorkhaland.

Sarmah further asked the West Bengal government to stop atrocities on supporters of the movement in Darjeeling.

Sarmah, who also heads the Assam Gorkha Sanmilan, said, “Creation of Gorkhaland is a legitimate demand. Gorkhas of the Northeast are in solidarity with those who are spearheading the movement for the separate state. We appeal Centre to settle the Gorkhaland issue by introducing a bill in the parliament for the creation of a separate state.”

The Assam Gorkha Sanmilan has also sent a memorandum to President Pranab Mukherjee, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uion Home Minister Rajnath Singh seeking the creation of a separate state.
