Reports of drug smuggled through Manipur are Shame for Manipur: Biren

Pothashang News Service : Imphal, February 24: It is shame for the state to learn from the reports from Delhi and Uttar Pradesh that illegal drugs are being smuggled from Myanmar through Manipur, said chief minister Nongthombam Biren Singh.

He was speaking at DM College of Science at the inauguration of the college week celebration.

Biren said in the last 11 months, the new government has waged a war against drugs to stop the negative impacts of drug abuse in the society.

The government has already started new policies for drug abusers such as rehabilitation programmes, imparting vocational training to them among other programmes, he added.

The government is conducting mass drives to destroy the illegal plantation of poppy plants in various parts of the state.

The chief minister appealed that it is the collective responsibility of the people of the state to uphold and promote the positive image of the State to the outside world. He thanked the people of the Senapati District especially the youths, students and civil societies of the area for extending co-operation and support to the government for destroying the poppy plants in the area. He said such initiatives are a sign of change in the state.
