Chief Minister Dr. Sarma also stressed on the need of intensifying drug seizures across the state, especially in the entry and exit points. Speaking on the drink and driving cases, the Chief Minister said that strict enforcement of traffic acts including combination of fines and cancelling driving licenses might prove to be deterrent.
For combating economic crimes and corruption, Chief Minister asked the SPs to ensure that the smugglers do not get the chance to illegally export subsidized fertilisers outside.
