The strike evoked a near ‘total’ response in Puducherry and Karaikal regions. 

No incidents, barring stone pelting in which the windscreen of five Tamil Nadu state government buses were shattered, were reported from any part of Puducherry.

Police made elaborate security arrangements and more than 500 volunteers of different political parties were arrested. 

Meanwhile, State DMK (South) Convenor R Siva MLA in a statement claimed that the strike was a success and thanked all sections of people.
