He was speaking at an event to observe the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking at the Rabindra Shatabarshiki Bhawan in state capital Agartala.

“The drug trade originated from the South district and then spread over the entire state. People even cultivated cannabis in reserve forest areas. Crime against women was on the rise then. The erstwhile Left government didn’t take any step to curb this,” Hindustan Times quoted Deb.

Deb said cases of HIV patients and us of the intravenous drug are also high there.

The police have arrested 855 people since the new government came to the power and 563 drug-related cases have been registered.
