A 24-hour general strike called to protest against the Framework Agreement signed between the Centre and Naga outfit NSCN(IM) crippled life in Manipur today.

The strike which started at midnight last night was peaceful, Director General of Police L M Khaute said. The police have made elaborate arrangements to control law and order situation during the general strike jointly called by three organizations, the DGP said.

Buses, taxis, and autorickshaws were off the road while business establishments and educational institutions were closed, police said. Attendance in offices was thin.

Roadblocks were put up and tires were burnt on roads during the strike, police said. The All Manipur United Clubs' Organisation, the United Committee Manipur and the Committee of Civil Societies Kangleipak who have jointly called the strike were of the view that the Framework Agreement poses threat to territorial integrity of Manipur.
