Movement of vehicle to Sikkim would be hit during the strike as the GJM has not yet declared that it would exempt Sikkim bound vehicles plying on the NH 31A out of the purview of the two-day strike, the operators said.

Many transporters here said that they would not ply their vehicles on the NH 31A during the two-day strike called by the GJM.

The GJM has called for a two-day strike in the Darjeeling Hills on May 15 and 16 demanding inclusion of the Doars and Siliguri in the proposed Hill Council.
