BJP grabs the first seat (West Bengal)

2 Comments
The General Elections 2014 (GE2014) starts with the first result as of today. The BJP and the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha have re-affirmed their ties. Thus the Darjeeling seat will remain with the NDA for the 2014 cycle. In 2009 Jaswant Singh was the winner (51.5%).   In return BJP (if it comes to power) will promise to look into creating State #30- Gorkhaland (currently part of West Bengal). The sticking point (as with the Andhra Pradesh/Telengana division) has been the allotment of Siliguri (the principal town in North Bengal). BJP may decide to act this time (and Congress may help as a quid pro quo), since Telengana division (and allotment of Hyderabad to Telengana) could not have happened without BJPs support.  As a result, Mamata will be facing a loss of up to 3 Lok Sabha seats but she will have a free run in the rest of Bengal. The central govt will also be freed up to strike (North Bengal focused) boundary/river water sharing agreements with Bangladesh (these talks are at a dead-end because of Didi). It is win-win for everybody!!!   BJP
president Rajnath Singh wrote in Twitter, “Gorkha Janamukthi Morcha
(GJM) president Shri Bimal Gurung has decided to support the BJP in
coming Lok Sabha polls. I welcome his decision.”
