Narcotic consumption rate alarming in Tripura
TIWN March 22, 2019

AGARTALA, March 17 (TIWN): Tripura’s narcotic consumption has increased by 10% in BJP era. With a suspicious move, now Govt has removed the checking system in the border for vehicles coming from Bangladesh and allowed any vehicle to enter 3 km inside Tripura without stoppage, which has increased chances of more smuggling and illegal exports and imports.

Tripura not only tops in narcotic consumption in the whole country according to national data, but also the narcotic consumption has increased 10% in 2018 than 2017. Govt data has revealed, ‘Even though countrywide consumption of tobacco has been decreased by 10%, but in case of Tripura it has been increased. Moreover now 55% death causes in Tripura are due to tobacco consumption. Due to unemployment rate’s increase however such illegal activities are on spike'.

Amid Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s so called ‘Nesh-Mukt-Tripura’ slogan, brown sugar, ganja smuggling have turned more rampant. Till now police couldn’t answer about the destruction of seized drug items in Tripura.

It’s quite surprising when BJP Govt is claiming a Govt against Drug empire and arrested around 500 people in drug mafia, but till now police couldn’t end the mafia regime fully, whereas if investigation was proper then the narcotic den could be unrooted as the Govt has ruled over 1 year, raising question why drug empire has increased rather than decreasing.
