Kolkata, Aug 8: West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan yesterday disapproved of the demand for a separate state of Gorkhaland by Gorkha Janmukti Morcha which is enforcing an indefinite bandh in Darjeeling, saying the state should remain united.

“I think that Telanagana came and that made it a big issue,” he said.

“.... To negotiate, it is for the government to see,” he added.
