All the three sub-divisions of Darjeeling today wore a deserted look on the second day of the indefinite shutdown which resumed yesterday after a day's relaxation.

The Gorkhaland Joint Action Committee (GJAC) had earlier asked people to strictly observe its "Ghar Bhitre Janta" (people inside homes) programme during state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's two-day stay in the hills starting today.

The chief minister is on way to Kalimpong where she is scheduled to be accorded a felicitation by the Lepcha community tomorrow.

Sources said that Mamata would hold an administrative meeting today at Kalimpong where the district magistrate, SP and other high officials are expected to be present. Meanwhile, a 5-member GJAC team reached Delhi to meet Congress and BJP leaders, GJM sources said, indicating that the team was likely to meet Congress general secretary C P Joshi and GJM Darjeeling MP Jaswant Singh today.
