Bimal Gurung’s Facebook Status:

“I, on behalf of the GJM would like to express my sincere gratitude to the BJP Prime-Ministerial candidate Shri Narendra Modi and the BJP President Shri. Rajnath Singh for nominating Shri S. S. Ahluwalia, BJP Vice President as the BJP nominee for the Darjeeling Parliamentary Constituency.

For the GJM it is not the question of an “outsider” but more important is the “cause” that is closest to our hearts. What we need to consider is our long-standing demand for a separate state.

We feel and are confident that the BJP only can help us to achieve our desired goal. A person of Shri S. S. Ahluwalia stature can raise the issue and lead it to its positive end as he has always been championing the cause of the Gorkhas.

Shri S. S. Ahluwalia has been a member of the Parliament of India representing Bihar and Jharkhand in the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament, over several terms from 1986-1992, 1992-1998, 2000–2006, and 2006-2012.

He was elected into the Parliament as an MP from Bihar, in the year 1986. Over the years of his career, he has held the posts of Minister for Urban Development, and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs in the Union Government.

He was also the Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, till recently when he lost his Rajya Sabha seat in the Jharkhand Rajya Sabha elections.”
