GJM calls for series of strikes in Darjeeling

Renewing their call for a separate Gorkhaland state, the Gorkha Janamukti Morcha today called for a series of strikes in Darjeeling district next month and advised tourists not to visit the hill stations during the bandh days.

GJM president Bimal Gurung called for four days of strikes in the three sub-divisions of Darjeeling, Kurseong and Kalimpong on March 14-15 and 21-22.

He also threatened to close all government offices in the region from March 9-27.

"We are doing this to renew our struggle for Gorkhaland and strengthen our demands," Gurung told a rally here.

He also advised tourists not to visit the hill stations during the bandh days to avoid any inconvenience.

"We can't help if they come during that time. But if they come before or after the bandh days, we will take care of them," Gurung said.
