Biren flagged off a motorbike rally, here, organised by Manipur Police, on International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

Manipur government launched war on drugs in 2018, because of this, around 18 thousand hectares of poppy plantation has been destroyed and around 297 drug smugglers were convicted, the chief minister said.
