In an apparent reference to the agitation for a separate Gorkhaland out of West Bengal, Mukherjee said: “In democracy there is no way of finding a solution except dialogue.”

In the tripartite meeting held Dec 21, there was no consensus on the issue of a Gorkhaland state but discussions to find a solution to the problem would continue, union Home Secretary G.K. Pillai said Monday after a three-hour meeting with the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha (GJM) and the state government.

The GJM has been spearheading a movement for a separate Gorkhaland state.
