Will not allow BJP to carve out Union territory in North Bengal: CM Mta Banerjee
KOLKATA/JALPAIGURI: Sections within the BJP were trying to split Bengal and carve out a “Union territory” in North Bengal, CM Mta Banerjee said on Monday, adding that she would not allow “any divide-and-rule policy” to take root in the state.
“In whose interest are they trying to split Bengal? What does UT mean?” Banerjee asked, adding: “It means taking away people’s s. But I will not allow anyone to divide Bengal.”
The BJP’s state unit responded by saying that it did not approve of any move to divide Bengal and added the “views” that Banerjee was referring to could be of “some individuals”. But the ’s Jalpaiguri leaders said there was “a virtual meeting on this demand” on Sunday and “the issue would be raised in the monsoon session of the Parliament”.
“This is false information. We have never supported any separatist sentiment. West Bengal has faced movements like Gorkhnd but we have been resolute in our stand. The has never discussed any such issue,” state BJP general secretary Sayantan Basu said. But he “could not comment if any individual” had “any separatist ambition”, he added. State vice-presi nt Raju Banerjee echoed Basu: “ Trinamool Congress is trying to malign our .”
但他补充称，“无法评论是否有人”有“任何分 裂主义野心”。邦副主席Raju Banerjee附和Basu称:“基层国大党试图诋毁我们人民党。”
The BJP’s Jalpaiguri vice-presi nt, Aloke Chakraborty, however, admitted there was a virtual meeting “attended by leaders”.
“There has been this demand here for some time, fuelled primarily by neglect and underdevelopment of this region; this is a reason why North Bengal is home to separatist movements. A statehood movement is not feasible but carving out a union territory is possible. This issue will be raised in the monsoon session of Parliament,” Chakraborty said. He, however, would not confirm or deny whether two BJP MPs were part of the virtual meeting.
What can she do if its carved out ?
And if the “outsiders” , the marwaris , Gujratis etc were not there even the economy of this state would have gone down the drain!
She is a Shame as a CM...I think the whole WB should be UT now
we won't allow u to carve out WB from India...
First this blindly supporting jihad leader should be behind the jail. Ridiculous CM
首先，这个盲目支持圣 战的领导人应该被关进监 狱。这个首席部长真是荒谬
She is a shameless po itical operative. Basically TMC won the Assembly ions through fraud practices and violent intimidation
Jihadis will turn bengal into another bangldesh
Look at Gurgaon, Bangalore, Pune etc. how fast they grown into IT and Industrial hubs. What you have done to the state? Tata ran away and many industries want to shift out. Do some value added and stop nonsense talks
What rubbish she talks. You have screwed Bengal inside out.
Bengal is in India..CM talks like she is out of it.
I support Modi...
Have BJP ever said that? She is inventing something to provoke emotional Bengalees.
She has made West Bengal a parasite state.

I am not sure if BJP really planned carving a UT out of Bengal. But Mamta Banerjee has given a good suggestion.
This woman is surviving on this rhetoric only.
Those who donot follow MODIJI footsteps are free to move to other countries. Follow modiji and remain in India

Mamta should understand she is not the PM.
Bjpee should accept defeat and focus on hel people till the next bengal ions. Inspite of them focussing more on covid Modi and Shah gave too much time to Bengal which they eventually lost and whole of India is now suffering due to second covid wave
