IMPHAL, November 28: The three days long general strike imposed by the Kangleipak Communist Party (MC) starting from this morning at 10am has partially affected normal life in the state during the first day today.
Even though most passenger vehicles including inter-state and inter district vehicles remained off the roads, most educational institutions and government offices remain functional.
The outfit had called the strike in protest against the killing of one of its cadre in an alleged encounter with the security forces.
Meanwhile, most shops were seen with open shutters in the bazar area with only a few remaining closed. However the main bazars remain open.
