Only in Kohima the shutdown lasted for three hours due to a public function organised by the apec Naga Students Federation.
There was no untoward incident reported from anywhere in the state and work resumed after the end of the shut down.
Congress had called for the shut down to protest against alleged corruption, nepotism and gross irregularities in several sectors in the Neiphiu Rio DAN government.
There were gross irregularities in appointments of schoolteachers and misuse of central funds for various rural development schemes, including NREGA, the party alleged.
