Darjeeling Bandh On July 2nd, 3rd and 4th... What to do ???

I have all planned for my trip to Darjeeling (like train bookings from Kolkata, toy train booking, itinerary etc.), but suddenly yesterday I saw on internet the news that a 72 hours Bandh is called starting from July 2nd.

I will be reaching on June 30th and will be leaving on July 2nd (the day when strike starts)...!!!

1) So, I m not sure as will I be getting conveyance on July 2nd from Darjeeling to NJP ???

2) Is there any sort of risk (due to political situatuion there) to travel during this period, as I will be travelling with my wife ?

3) Should I cancel my trip now (which I really dont want), or should wait (if yes, till how long) ?

Thanks to anyone who can help me with these questions ASAP...!!!
