TMC sees Red over Amit Shah's letter to Darjeeling MP mentioning 'Gorkhaland'

The mention of Gorkhaland by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in a letter to Darjeeling MP Raju Bista, who had sought protection for Gorkhas in the national capital, has kicked up a row, with West Bengal's ruling TMC seeing in it a "plot" to divide the state.
The BJP, which has emerged as a major political force in the state after the Lok Sabha polls, however, rejected the charge as "baseless".
According to sources in the saffron party, Bista wrote a letter to Shah in July, where he voiced concern over Gorkhas being left out of the purview of the special cell formed by Delhi Police to counter acts of racism, particularly against people from the northeast.
Shah, while replying to Bista's letter, said his concern over the people of "Gorkhaland and Ladakh area" is being looked at. The use of the word of "Gorkhaland" by Shah drew criticism from the TMC, which accused the Centre and the BJP of plotting to divide the state.
