Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Tuesday took part in a 'Public Convention' and a 'Community Rally' organised by Zomi Frontal Organisation as a part of the “War on Drugs” campaign at Kwakta in Bishnupur.

Addressing the convention, Singh said that people should always be sincere in the fight against illegal drugs and intoxicants, and stated that the campaign to eradicate intoxicants should start from the family.

The Chief Minister also said that the state government would extend all support to the people of Kwakta in their mission to eradicate drugs from the society.

Expressing doubt over the conduct of some private rehabilitation centres, Singh said that the state government would have rehabilitation centres where addicts can be reformed properly.

While delivering his speech at the 'Public Rally Against Poppy Cultivation' and 'Drug Abuse' at Lamka, Singh appreciated the people of Churachandpur for their support in all the initiatives taken up by the government.

Speaking about orphanage homes in Churachandpur District, he stated that people of the District should realise the effects of drug addiction.

“Loss of many lives due to drug addiction has made many children orphans. It is high time everyone should contribute their part in rooting out drug addiction and save the future generation from its harmful effects,” he added.

Tribal Affairs and Hills Minister Vungzagin Valte, Deputy Speaker Kongkham Robindro, Chairman of Planning and Development Authority T. Robindro and other top officials were also present at the convention.
