Kolkata, May 13: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee today said she would try to sort out the Jangalmahal and Darjeeling Hills problems within three months.

"I will try my level best to sort out the problems in three months," Banerjee told a Bengali news channel here.

While Jangalmahal area in three districts of West Bengal are affected by the Maoist problem, the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha is demanding separate statehood for the Darjeeling Hills.

"I will go to Jangalmahal and Darjeeling Hills as promised and talk to the people there," she said.

She said that would talk to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram regarding the Jangalmahal issue.

The Trinamool Congress has long been demanding withdrawal of central forces from Jangalmahal area claiming that their operations were only helping the CPI(M) and not the poor people of the area. PTI
