We will not tolerate any trouble in hills: Mamata

In a stern warning to the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), Chief Minister today said her government would not tolerate any attempt to foment trouble in the Darjeeling hills.

"Whenever there is an election, they talk of violence and bandhs. We will not tolerate this," she said at a programme of Tamang development board.

GJM chief Bimal Gurung said the Chief Minister stated that Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) was given Rs 400 crore by the state government.

"Let her give the details of the amount by September 27. Failing which we will call a on September 28," he said.

Banerjee said that instead of working for development, they are indulging in politics.

"We want peace in hills. We will not allow violence. Enough is enough. We must work for development. We have developed Lamahatta, Mirik, Tiger Hill, Lava Lolegaon. But they want to destroy it all by violence," she said.

"We will not stop the process of development in the hills. We want people to get employment. We are here to address the issues of the hills. If the hills smile, we will smile," she said.

Referring to her frequent visit to the hills which some Opposition parties had objected to, the Chief Minister expresses surprise why they are "angry" over her visits to the hills.

"We never feel angry if they visit Siliguri," she pointed out.
