The BJP (West Bengal BJP) has suffered a setback in West Bengal after veteran leader Eknath Khadse left the party in Maharashtra. Gorkha Janmukti Morcha supremo Bimal Gurung said that the Center did not fulfill its promises regarding Gorkhaland. Mamta Banerjee has fulfilled all her promises. That is why I am separating from the NDA. In the 2021 assembly elections, we will form an alliance with the Trinamool Congress and answer the BJP.

Bimal Gurung, who has raised the flag for Gorkhaland for a long time, has said that our demand is still there. We will take our demand forward. This is our goal and vision. In the Lok Sabha elections of 2024, we will support the same party which will accept our demands.
It is worth mentioning that Bimal Gurung, who has been absconding for the last three years on the demand of Gorkhaland, suddenly appeared in Kolkata on Wednesday. Speaking to the media, he said - I am not a criminal. Nor am I malevolent. I am a political leader. I want a political solution for my political demand.

In 2017, Bimal Gurung Underground was running after the killing of a policeman allegedly by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha activists. The Bengal police had issued a lookout notice on them and registered sections under the Anti-Terrorism Act UAPA.

During the press conference, he said - We supported BJP for 12 years but nothing happened about our demands. Now I declare that I will support Mamata Banerjee in the 2021 assembly elections. Now I am not with NDA.

Significantly, next year assembly elections are going to be held in Bengal, in such a situation, the return of Bimal Gurung is being seen as a big change. The Mamata Banerjee government has been supporting Bimal Gurung's rival Binoy Tamang in the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha. Now Bimal Gurung's support for Mamta Banerjee can turn the political dice in the areas of Darjeeling.
