Quotes

"There is no Gorkha sentiment this time in the hills. Gurung has lost his earlier control here. The votes in the hills will be divided. In the plains, the Congress will get 60,000-70,000 votes. We will finish number one in the plains and if we get even 50,000 votes from the plains we will be through" former minister and CPI-M leader Ashok Bhattacharya told IANS
"And for that, all Rai groups have joined hands with the GNLF which is openly supporting Trinamool" he claimed
"The Congress is corrupt and is bent on destroying the country by protecting the capitalists. The communal BJP is a danger that needs to be rooted out to ensure a secular country. For a safe and corruption free nation, we must elect for a change on the basis of policy and not leaders and to achieve this we must stop the NaMo-RaGa (Narendra Modi-Rahul Gandhi) music" quipped the politburo member
But Ahluwalia's current uneasiness about Gorkhaland is reflecting in BJP's own stance to demands for separate statehood. "We recognise the special needs and unique problems of the hill and desert states. In consultation with the governments of these states, state-specific developmental models will be evolved so that the aspirations of the people are met" the BJP said in its manifesto earlier this week
