The West Bengal state assembly cleared a resolution for unified Bengal in Kolkata on Monday. The resolution was passed following a heated debate in the assembly, where it was stated that “any attempt to divide the state of West Bengal by the BJP leadership will be defeated.” 

According to information, the debate revolved around the topic that the opposition, indicating towards the BJP, attempted to cede North Bengal. The legislators from the ruling Trinamool Congress tried to pin the opposition by pointing out the differences in the saffron camp. 

The state minister for Agriculture Sovandeb Chatterjee, while addressing the House, used the word “influx” of Lepchas, Gorkhas to the Hills to rationalise his speech. He further spoke about the history of the people from the hill region. 

The Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari accused the ruling party of raking up the matter of a separate Gorkhaland and keeping it alive and ticking without getting it resolved while signing the GTA agreement. He later accused the TMC for taking all steps keeping in mind the panchayat and Lok Sabha polls.
