Governor M K Narayanan today made clear to the GJM, which has demanded a separate Gorkhaland state, that West Bengal will remain united and if the party wanted his intervention, they should seek it.
"If they want my intervention, then they should come around for my intervention. But I have made it very clear that the state of West Bengal extends from the oceans to the mountains," Narayanan said when asked to react to GJM supremo Bimal Gurung seeking his 'mediation'.
Asked whether the Trinamool Congress government in the state has sent him any proposal to mediate, Narayanan said, "That I don't know. You ask the government."
The GJM, agitating for a separate Gorkhaland state in Darjeeling, yesterday sought the Governor's 'mediation'.
Narayanan has earlier said that he could not mediate as he was the Governor, but was ready to talk to Bimal Gurung if he approached him.
