"Darjeeling is part and parcel of West Bengal. There is no question of division of West Bengal. We are united, we will be united and we will be together," Banerjee said.
Apparently referring to the recent visit by a six member GJM team to Delhi with the Gorkhaland demand, Banerjee alleged "I am sorry to say ... I will write to Prime Minister whether it was a right step or not that some Central Ministers invited three or four Morcha leaders to Delhi some days back.
"A meeting was also held with them. They have reported back that some Central leaders have advised them to revive their movement in Darjeeling hills. There was also an assurance of according autonomy to them," Banerjee said.
Stating that peace had been prevailing in Darjeeling and would continue, she said "I request the Centre that has responsibility to see that peace is not disturbed in Darjeeling."

The Chief Minister also ruled out dissolution of the Gorkha Territorial Administration, the hill council set up under a tripartite agreement in Darjeeling to run the administration there, replacing an earlier one.
