“I am not anti-Gorkhaland” – says TMC candidate Shanta Chettri

“I am not anti-Gorkhaland… I have raised the demand for Gorkhaland in Bengal legislative assembly… there is a record of that, anyone can verify…. I was labelled as anti-Gorkhaland while I was still an MLA… they burned down my house… and they made my life difficult… but I didn’t give up… I am here to serve my people…” with these phrases TMC candidate from Kurseong constituency Ms. Shanta Chettri tried to find an emotional connect with the people in Mirik.

Addressing a press conference, Ms. Chettri stated that, “I am contesting this election for good governance, development and people under the able leadership of Ms. Mamata Banerjee… unlike those who preach Gorkhaland, and yet haven’t done one thing to achieve it and are running the hills in a dictatorial fashion… I am commited to ushering in development in our region…”
