Accusing the Congress of endorsing statehood to Telangana for electoral gain, senior CPI-M leader and former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Monday alleged that the action has led to turmoil in Darjeeling. He also predicted that the country will be in flames in the coming days following fresh statehood demands, and expressed doubt over whether the Congress would at all gain from the creation of Telangana.
