She also urged the people not to listen to GJM leaders and said: "Bimal (Bimal Gurung) Hatao and Hills bachao (remove Bimal and save the Hills). They are corrupt leaders and I will urge the people of the Hills not to listen to them."

We held talks with the government of West Bengal. We urged the state government to work to restore peace." He further said: "I would like to say in connection with the matter of the issue of Bengali language in the Hills that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had made the matter clear in Mirik saying that Bengali language is optional. So there is nothing mandatory in it. So the people should not get confused."
