A 24-hour general strike called by the Kuki Statehood Demand Committee (KSDC) disrupted normalcy in all Kuki-dominated areas in Manipur on Monday.

The KSDC was protesting against the refusal by the Union government to carve out a Kuki State from Manipur and holding talks with Kuki militant organisations which had come out in the open after signing the suspension of operations agreement with the Centre.
