Personnel of Manipur Fire Service, IMC, women vendors and NGOs took part in the cleanliness drive.
The three markets were closed since April 21 and as precautionary measures for the women vendors, a cleanliness drive will be organised on Sunday starting 7 am.
Nupi Keithel Sinfam Amadi Saktam Kanba Lup general secretary Thingujam Rani said that before issuing such an order, the government should discuss with the representatives of the markets 10 days ahead.
Tension erupted at Ima Keithel area in Imphal on Wednesday as women vendors strongly opposed the state government's decision to close the market yet again.
There is no proper electrification inside the market and the market shed has been used for illegal activities at night, said a women vendor in Imphal.
The women vendors had urged the state government to arrange something to open the market as Ningol Chakkouba is coming shortly.
Over 6,000 vendors who have been supporting their families are now facing extreme difficulties as Khwairamband Ima Keithel remain shut in view of the pandemic.
