Normal life affected

IMPHAL, Sep 21 : Normal life in the State was affected by the 24 hours general strike called by the National Revolutionary Front of Manipur (NRFM) to protest the day when Manipur was made to ‘forcibly’ sign the Merger Agreement to merge with the Union of India in 1949.
During the general strike, main markets in Imphal including Ima Keithel, Paona Keithel and Thangal Keithel bore a deserted look while inter-district transport vehicles stayed off the road.
Educational institutes, both State run and private, were also closed due to the general strike. There were no reports of unwanted incidents during the general strike.
