New Delhi: A day after he accepted West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's offer to be a Trinamool Congress candidate for the Lok Sabha from Darjeeling, former India football captain Bhaichung Bhutia has unfolded his vision to serve the people of the hill region.
"The enormity of the work I have to do has sunk in and I have to get cracking straightaway," Bhutia told IANS on Thursday.
"At this point, all I can do is to promise to work for the development of the hills with sincerity and honesty. I can assure the people of Darjeeling that I will not fail for want of effort." (Watch video)
