Bharatiya Janata Party Bagdogra (West Bengal), May 21 (ANI): Reiterating his commitment towards the creation of separate Gorkhaland, senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Jaswant Singh on Thursday said that the demand for Gorkhaland would be met despite the saffron party being in the opposition in the Lok Sabha.

“The loss of the BJP makes no difference to the demand and the reasonable cause of Gorkhaland,” Jaswant Singh said while speaking to the supporters of the GJM and the mediapersons here.

Scores of activists and supporters of the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) had gathered to welcome the BJP leader.

Responding to the greetings, Jaswant Singh remarked that it was a very good feeling as Darjeeling was like a home to him.

Singh said that his party would revive back to its old glory.

“The BJP is passing through a rough phase this time. But, it is just a matter of time before the party revived back to its old glory,” he added.

Jaswant Singh won the Darjeeling seat after defeating Jibesh Sarkar of Communist Party of India-Marxist by a huge margin. (ANI)
