The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Tuesday lauded state government’s move to bifurcate Jaipaiguri and create Alipurduar as the 20th district.
“We support government’s move, and also demand more such smaller districts such as Asansol, Burdwan and Burdwan (E). Hooghly should be bifurcated into Hooghly and Arambagh. Keeping in mind the deteriorating law and order situation and administrative setback in Siliguri, it will be good to separate it from Darjeeling,” said state BJP chief Rahul Sinha.
Speaking on the death of a hotel owner in Howrah caused allegedly by repeated threat calls from a local gangster, Sinha said it is Sumit Naha’s death, which forced police to take action against such extortion calls.
“Police should inquire with other hotel owners who would be facing such extortion calls. The CM has built an administration system, which is goon-dependent. If not taken care, it will spell doomsday for the state,” Sinha said.
Sumit Naha, the hotel owner, died Monday following a heart attack after he was threatened repeatedly over phone by Dipak Shaw, the gangster operating in the Howrah station area, his mother Manjudebi alleged.

The party has decided to protest in front of Golabari police station, under which the incident occurred, and has also demanded the arrest of concerned police officers.
Talking about the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, Sinha said the CM rated different departments, but never rated the Home department, headed by her.
“If a rating of her department is done, then the Home department, would get the lowest marks,” Sinha added.
A state-level team, lead by senior BJP leader Tathagata Ray, would visit Khatra in Bankura where BJP supporters were allegedly attacked by TMC workers.
The team comprising leaders Rabin Chatterjee, Krishna Bhattacharya and Amitabha Roy would visit Khatra on June 26. The party has also decided to hold demonstration against the attack on July 3, which will be attended by Rahul Sinha.
