  4. All those who are trying to promote tourism in any area of Darjeeling,Kurseong, Kalimpong as part of West Bangal, please be honest and tell a little of the history of this land and the Gorkhali people. And also be honest to mention that these land areas were hired by the British from Sikkim and ABSORBED by Bangal in 1954. And that Bangal collects a huge amount of revenue from the area without spending any money because the regions were built and developed by the British. That is the reason why Bangal keeps clinging to this free revenue earning region.
