End Asok-Bimal duel, says Trinamul

SILIGURI, May 9: The Trinamul Congress has demanded an end to the continuing verbal duel between the state urban development minister, Mr Asok Bhattacharya and the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha chief Mr Bimal Gurung. “This verbosity has been vitiating the already emotionally charged atmosphere both in the Darjeeling Hills and the plains,” the party said.Mr Partha Chatterjee, the leader of the Opposition in the West Bengal Assembly and Trinamul Congress leader, said that when all the parties were expected to exercise restraint in view of the deteriorating condition in the Hills, Mr Bhattacharya and Mr Gurung were indulging in a ridiculous verbosity. “The state government, on one hand, is calling the GJMM for dialogue and Mr Asok Bhattacharya is, on the other hand, queering the pitch by calling the GJMM leaders anti-national terrorists. This must end,” Mr Chatterjee said. (The Statesman)
