Earlier, the Assam CM cited that the northeastern state might soon become like Punjab which has witnessed the grave impacts with the utilization and trade of illicit drugs by the youth.
In order to curb its escalation, the Chief Minister launched an all-out battle against the drugs menace across the northeastern state of Assam, as soon as he assumed power a couple of months ago.
