Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, May 19: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) on Saturday praised the Mamata Banerjee government, which would complete a year on Sunday, saying it was prepared to give more time to the state government to resolve the Darjeeling crisis.

"We appreciate the state government for trying to resolve the Darjeeling crisis. It is a matter of time and we will give them time," GJM spokesperson Harka Bahadur Chhetri said after meeting the chief minister at the state secretariat. "It appears that most of the problems will be resolved with the autonomy promised to us," Chhetri said.

While replying to a question, Chhetri said it would be not be right to expect that all expectations would be fulfilled in a year. "It was only monologue and not dialogue during the previous regime which had no real intention to resolve our issues. We have been able to express our problems fully to the new government," Chhetri, Kalimpong MLA and a GJM central committee member, said.

Stating that the budgetary allocation for Darjeeling hills had been raised to nearly Rs 55 crore, he said: "We want more funds for proper development of the hills."
