“As children are the assets of the parents, we become restless when they fall into the clutch of drugs; they must be brought towards the right direction,” he said.
The people need to join hands in the attempt to abolish substance abuse. The public should give support to the steps currently being taken up by chief minister, N. Biren against drugs, he further said.

However, with the immense help given by the people and the moral support provided by Thoubal district police in many fields, several youths who had been abusing drugs were rounded up and consultations were provided to them.
