    The Union minister of state for culture and tourism also accused the TMC government of ignoring the local art and culture of Darjeeling.

    "There is no platform available for conducting cultural activities in Darjeeling. If the state government provides land, my ministry can do a lot of work here in the field of art and culture," Patel said.
