Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha inaugurated the 55th NSS day on Sunday organized by the Tripura State NSS Cell and Tripura Youth Affairs Department.
Speaking in the program he said:
“65 percent of the total population is youth. This is not being tolerated by many conspirators. Drugs are being deliberately spread in the state. Cannabis is smuggled from Tripura to other states. Again, drugs from outside the state entering in Tripura. All these drugs are smuggled using the state as a corridor. In schools, teachers should keep an eye on the students. If someone consumes drugs, he should be identified”.
“Everyone should be aware even outside the school. Everyone should stand against addiction. Nesha Mukt Abhiyan has been launched to make Tripura a drug free state. The state government is working with an uncompromising policy against drug addiction. The SIT has been formed. Many families are being destroyed due to addiction. Many have become involved in the drug trade with the desire to become rich overnight. Police is continuously conducting operations against drug addiction”.
The Chief Minister also said that it will not be possible to eradicate drug addiction if the anti-drug campaign does not take the form of a movement.
The Chief Minister urged the police to provide information about who is selling drugs. He also said that the names of the informants will be kept confidential. Providing information to the police will greatly facilitate the police in working. There is no end to development. Development must be sustained. Development will depend on those who will build the country in the future.
Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha said that NSS has a big role to play there. The prime minister of the country always thinks about the youth. The main asset of the country is the youth. India has more of that wealth than any other country.
