Moloy Ghatak, state PWD minister said, “Two  prominent leaders from the hills are joining AITC – this will bring a significant shift in the politics of the hills. They are joining the party to be a part of the developmental initiatives taken by chief minister Mamata Banerjee.”

He said, “The prominent leaders like Bimal Gurung and Anit Thapa have always supported AITC. With Mr Binay Tamang and Mr Rohit Sharma joining the party, AITC will become stronger. The effect will be seen in near future as many BJP leaders from Jalpaiguri and Cooch Behar might join AITC.”

Mr Ghatak said, “GTA election has not yet been announced – we will not be able to comment on if AITC will fight the election alone or will form an alliance. This joining will change the track of politics in the hills.”

The state education minister, Bratya Basu said, “On behalf of chief minister Mamata Banerjee, AITC national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee and the AITC family, we welcome Mr Binay Tamang and Mr Rohit Sharma to the party. They are joining the party for development and to be the bridge between the hills and the plains,- “This is the outcome of CM Mamata Banerjee’s relentless effort to bring unity within the state, she has always stood beside the people of hills” he said.

“We are now expanding to the hills – because we firmly believe that this region needs development. The people in this region know that only CM Banerjee can save them from BJP’s divisive politics.

He alleged that BJP has developed it’s skill at divisive politics – they want to create a rift between the hills and the plains. CM Mamata Banerjee is strongly opposing their politics of division. Historically speaking, Gurkhas and Bengalis are living in the hills with peace and harmony for much longer – even before the Britishers established Darjeeling

“The people of the hills want to continue living with peace and harmony – and they have realised that if anyone wants their betterment, it is CM Mamata Banerjee,” Mr Basu said.

Former GTA Chairman Binay Tamang said, “I resigned from my post and from GJM on 15 July. I was in touch with the AITC leaders ever since.”

“CM Mamata Banerjee is a dynamic and visionary leader – we want to see her as the Prime Ministerial candidate in 2024. AITC National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee is also a skilled leader of the party,” Mr Tamang said.

“We belonged to a regional party, but now that we have joined a national party – we would like to work for the people of North Bengal through AITC,” Mr Tanang said.

The opposition party in the hills is BJP and its alliance. They are leveraging the issues of hills and the emotions of the people to win elections. BJP has always tried to ruin the peace and tranquillity of the hills and made fake promises,” Mr Tamang alleged.

“They have also tried to divide Bengal – but this will not happen, we are united. We are joining AITC to work for the development of the hills,” said Rohit Shatma.

“If GJM founder Bimal Gurung, former GJM leader Anit Thapa and their groups want to join AITC – they are most welcome. The past is the past – people’s mind set have changed now,” said minister Moloy Ghatak.
