Lamlai Mapari Thougal Lup is all set to organise a bike rally on February 28 and a poster campaign from February 23 onwards, supporting chief minister N Biren Singh’s campaign on ‘War on Drugs’, secretary general of Lamlai Mapari Thougal Lup Laishram Bobysana announced on Tuesday.

Speaking in a press conference held at Manipur Press Club, he said that there is no MLA of Lamlai assembly constituency. However, Chief Minister N Biren Singh has been taking responsibility of the assembly constituency as its real guardian, he added.

He further said that the role of an MLA is very important particularly during assembly sessions as they can bring up problems and issues on the floor of the house. In case of Lamlai assembly constituency, the chief minister had raised its issues due to the absence of MLA, he said. The chief minister’s responsive gesture is highly appreciated by people of the assembly constituency, he mentioned. Besides, the locals have also decided to support the initiatives taken up by the chief minister to combat drug menace.

Although the drug problem has been increasing each day in most of the assembly constituencies, Lamlai assembly constituency has not done much concerning the issue.

However, in support of the chief minister’s initiative, Lamlai Mapari Thougal Lup will organise the bike rally which will spread awareness on the ill effects of drug addiction.

From February 23 onwards, a poster campaign will be carried out, creating awareness about the harmful impacts caused by drug addiction in society and family, he added.

During the press conference, t-shirts to be used in the bike rally were also launched.
