Markets, shops and business establishments remained closed while transport services between Manipur and neighbouring states and within the state were cancelled in view of the general strike called by Manipur People's Liberation Front (MPLF).

All roads in the capital in Imphal wore a deserted look as people remained indoors, the reports said.

Police and central para-military forces were heavily deployed at all vulnerable points.

MPLF has been boycotting Independence Day and Republic Day celebrations every year and calls for the general strike on these days for the past several years.
