Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has exhorted the state police force to continue with its efforts to curb drug menace while lauding the various busts and arrests made in recent years.
Speaking at the Half-Yearly Conference of Superintendents of Police and Commandants of AAPBn and IRBn at the state police headquarters here on Tuesday evening, Khandu said the state government is very serious and will not tolerate drug abuse and traffickers operating in the state.
“Drug menace is a serious issue. It can completely destroy a generation. We as elders and guardians of society need to do everything to save our future,” he said.
Let us together wipe out drug menace from our society. Today we face a threat more dangerous than terrorism.— Pema Khandu པདྨ་མཁའ་འགྲོ་། (@PemaKhanduBJP) November 9, 2021

Khandu, who has been pushing community based organizations and religious institutions to create awareness amongst their members, said due to social nature of the menace, addicts need to be handled with care but go hard with traffickers.
