Speaking on the occasion, N. Biren stated that the cash reward had been given to the police teams in recognition of the achievement and dedicated performance of duty under the war on drugs campaign.

He continued that drug menace in the State had sprung up in the last 10 years.  Not only trafficking of drugs from outside the State but also setting up and operating of drugs manufacturing factories could be seen nowadays, he said adding that Manipur is in an alarming situation with regard to drugs.

He mentioned that with the support of public and hard work of the Police Department, much achievement could be seen in the Government’s fight against illegal drugs trafficking and its consumption.

He continued the Government is still committed to its stand of not compromising on any issues related to drugs as the war against drugs is a continuing campaign. Though the Government is not able to reward every achievement of all police teams at the moment, N. Biren maintained that the Government recognised the dedicated service of every police personnel.

Expressing dissatisfaction on the involvement of some police personnel in illegal drug related activities, giving bad image to the hard work of whole Police Department, the Chief Minister stressed the need for screening of personnel who consume drugs or are connected with such activities to put them in rehabilitation centre or keep them away from war on drugs activities of the Police Department.

Director General of Police P. Doungel and other senior police officials were also present during the programme.
