MAFRO lauds drive against drugs

19 June 2017

IMPHAL | June 18
Manipur friendly organisation (MAFRO) has lauded the continuing campaign against drugs held by the present government under Chief Minster N. Biren Singh, said a release.
However, MAFRO has noticed that these banned substances are still readily available at bazaars and lanes. The price of Paan that was sold at the cost of Rs. 5 to 10 has been increased to Rs. 7 to 15 and it actually is helping the business by giving them more profit.
This proves that some of these businessmen, who have a wider circle of friends, are in good terms with bureaucrats of the government and have the power to take control over them, it alleged and demanded that the government must punish those involved.
On the other hand, MAFRO has expressed their disappointment in finding the office of primary sub- centre at Thoubal Khetri Leikai being kept locked, when they visited the place on June 15, 11 am and have requested the authorities concerned to look into the issue.
