Anti-drug movement gaining ground in hills of Khowai

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, May 15, 2019 : A popular movement is gaining momentum across the hills of Khowai sub-division to prevent the spread of various narcotic items like Yaba tablets and other tranquilizers  to replace Ganja among the youths.

The BJP led government after coming into power has launched a drive against ganja which was largely successful and most of the hilly areas are now free from this menace. But instantly a new bunch of narcotic items replaced it and gained tremendous popularity among the youths.

It spread like anything in the hills of Khowai and the entire younger generation was about to be ruined when their mothers and sisters took the initiative to prevent these menace.

The first sign of resistance was witnessed when more than one hundred mothers and sisters took out a rally at Tulasikhar on May 13 and raised slogan against use of narcotics. They also organized a meeting in the market shed and proclaimed that anybody takes such narcotics or resorts to such business they will be punished.

On the next day many others joined them captured some of the drug paddlers from Bachaibari, Sombaria Bazar, East Bachaibari and Khatia Bazar and warned them about strong action if they don’t stop it immediately.

In the face of strong resistance the drug users disclosed the names of some of the kingpins of the illegal trade like Litan Debbarma, Amarendra Debbarma, Biswamani and Rathindra Debbarma of Khatiabari and Akhrabari. However all of them were found absconding.

Not only drug various kind of gambling like Tir and Jhand Munda also was absorbing a large number of youths of the area. Mothers and sisters said their resistance movement against such gambling also will continue.

Initially they tried to prevent such menace with the help of administration and informed the authority. Police also raided some of the hide outs of the drug paddlers and gamblers but these were too inadequate forcing the mothers and sisters to take step to save their siblings and brothers from demoralization.
