Both passenger services and private vehicles stayed off the road and most shops along the route remained closed during the 24 hour bandh.

Since early morning, womenfolk and locals of Nongdum Napet and Yourbung under Lamlai police station came out to the streets and disrupted vehicular movement along the road.

Supporters also burned tyres on the road and place several objects to block the road, however there has been no reports of any untoward incident during the 24 hour bandh except for the police firing some tear gas shells at around 10:30am at Yourbung and Nongdum areas to disperse the supporters.
