GJM-sponsored bandh disrupts traffic on NH in Sikkim

Gangtok, Nov 20 (PTI) Traffic on Sikkim's national highway, the sole road connecting the state with rest of the country, was paralysed throughout the day due to Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha (GJM)-sponsored bandh in Darjeeling Hills.

No vehicles, barring those of army and emergency services, plied through the highway during the day, police said.

Traffic between Sikkim and Siliguri in West Bengal resumed at 5 pm after GJM relaxed its bandh, they said.
