Jaswant Singh puts forth demand for Gorkhaland in LS
 

New Delhi: Darjeeling MP and expelled BJP leader Jaswant Singh on Dec. 14 raised in the Lok Sabha the demand for creation of Gorkhaland state saying the people of the region were already "emotionally separated" from rest of West Bengal.

Speaking in the House for the first time after being sacked from BJP in August, Singh made a strong plea for an appeal from Parliament to the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha to withdraw its four-day strike that began on Dec. 14 and participate in the talks scheduled for December 21.

In this regard, he reached out to L K Advani, "my former colleague with whom I have had the pleasure of sitting with for four decades", asking him to join such an appeal. Singh reminded Advani about the mention of separate Gorkhaland in BJP's manifesto.
