Luwangsangbam Apunba Nupi Lup has expressed regret for giving a political slur to the recent seizure of tobacco products at Luwangsangbam Mamang Leikai and subsequent disposal by the Lup members at Luwangsangbam Salam Chingjin on July 28.
The lup/body in a statement condemned those who remarked and commented on social media platforms that the seizure was politically motivated.
The body has been strictly against all activities that could ruin the society, including sale and smuggling of narcotic substances and will continue to do so, it said while adding that the seizure of tobacco products worth crores of money was just a part of their movement against drug issue and has no political hand.
Significantly legal procedure has been initiated against all those involved in the business, it said.
The body has been contributing towards the welfare of the society and saving youths from the mouth of drug menace since its inception, it continued while stating that citing political influence in the recent seizure and disposal of tobacco products is baseless.
