The Supreme Court on Friday urged the people of Darjeeling and Kalimpong to maintain peace and order as the Central government informed it that it has provided the West Bengal government with four more CRPF companies to deal with the violent agitation for separate Gorkhaland.

"As an elected representative of people from West Bengal, I feel urgency to draw your attention and involvement towards an immediate and peaceful solution in the hill district of Darjeeling", Chowdhury said in the letter.

Prakash, who had resigned from Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) in May, had proposed to launch a separate statehood agitation on the line of the Telengana stir. The situation in the hills of Bengal has become a major concern for both the state and the central governments as the indefinite bandh called by the pro-Gorkhaland parties is showing no sign of ending.

West Begal CM has discussed the issue in detail with Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in at least five telephonic conversations. Thousands of community members have been indulging in strikes and protests attempting to get their voices heard by the state Government and the Centre.

Speaking to Indian Express, an official in the state Home Department said, "The area is very important geo-politically". Trespassers from Bangladesh and Nepal were stirring up unrest in the state with political motivation, she had alleged. It seems as if the Centre and the State are not anxious.

Earlier, ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) party general secretary and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Partha Chatterjee said, "There has been support from foreign lands to the unrest in the hills, and we have definite proof of that".

He said the state government could not deploy any additional police as it had done to the maximum, and sought central armed police force for assistance.
