Addressing a packed jam crowd who had come to hear GJM backed BJP candidate S.S. Ahluwalia on Tuesday Gurung claimed that Gorkhaland will be created sooner or later. “Whenever she comes here she cries Banga Bhanga Hobena, but we will create Gorkhaland and Didi will witness this,” the hill leader added announcing to leave the GTA chief post after April 17.

Gurung admitted that there have been some mistakes in the past. “We will have no more strikes here. I accept that there have been some mistakes and people have suffered. If there will be any strike further it will be in Delhi and like Ahluwalia we will stay in Delhi to protest for Gorkhaland,” he asserted appealing the people to vote for BJP. “There has been a huge loss due to bandhs but i will recover that by uplifting the hills,” he added.

On the other side, Mamata Bannerjee has during her campaign rallies in the constituency said that the GJM will have to face the music after the polls. She has blamed the GJM for not co-operating while selecting the candidates for the Darjeeling seat after which she was forced to field Bhaichung Bhutia, the former star Indian soccer player. Mamata considered being more experienced than Gurung in politics earlier used the divide and rule politics to garner support from the Lepchas and Tamangs this poll.

The relationship between the two leaders reached into a thorny bush after the GJM choose to back Ahluwalia, the BJP nominee for reasons that the party would come to power at the centre and that the demand for Gorkhaland will get prominence.
