Gangtok: The Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) has appealed its youth wing -- Gorkha Janmukti Yuwa Morcha -- to withdraw its general strike called on December 29, keeping in mind the festive season.

In a press note dated December 26, 2019, GJM president Binoy Tamang said that keeping in view of Christmas, Dukpa New Year, Sikkimese New Year, visit of Shri Satpal Maharaj to Darjeeling and inconvenience caused to tourists, he requested for Darjeeling to be a "strike-free zone".

The first one will be on Saturday, December 28, from Darjeeling to Kurseong, and another one on January 5 where youths will rally from Kurseong to Darjeeling along with GJM leaders and other frontal organisations.
