“Spoke to Mamata Banerjee… She has apprised me of the situation prevailing in Darjeeling,” he said.

“I appeal to the people living in Darjeeling and nearby areas to remain calm and peaceful. Nobody should resort to violence… In a democracy like India resorting to violence will never help in finding a solution. Every issue can be resolved through mutual dialogue.
