The statement added that there will be an alternative political programme where thousands of youth will march against the implementation of the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens (NRC). 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.
