BISHALGRAH, Oct 11 (TIWN): CPI-M Sports Minister Shahid Chowdhury's den Boxnagar, Sonamura's ganja empire now extended to Bisalgarh under the active patronage of rules Ng CPI-M. Eventhough across India cannabis production has been banned, but in Northeast state Tripura Ganja production goes fluent throughout the year. Indo-Bangla lined Sonamura, Boxonagar, Melaghar areas under Sepahijala Dist are the den of narcotic business along with thousands of illegal Bangladeshis' residing over there. On Wednesday 1100 kilo of Ganja was recovered by Bishalgarh led by Bishalgarh SP Sudipta Das worth Rs. 30 lakhs at least. SP Sudipta Das said that total 44 sacks of Ganja were recovered from the truck bearing number TR-01X1805 near Tapobon Asram area.

 But police could only arrest the helper of the driver named Uttam Sarkar whether the driver escaped.

Evenafter so many anti-cannabis laws, Ganja gardens’ abolishment, there is no fear among the illegal traders. The reason has been identified as lack of proper legal actions against the illegal ganja traders across Tripura. Tripura Police only arrested one person in last year 2016-17 whereas there are reports of 17,60,195 illegal Ganja plants abolishment. Lack of legal actions has not only raised question about ruling govt's goodwill to reduce illegal trades and clean Tripura from Ganja-addiction, but it has raised question upon the role of Police in it.

However, to avoid increasing number of crimes, pending cases and to avoid hard works for FIRs no initiative has been taken against them. Vote-Bank; which is a huge matter for all the political parties has bound Tripura ruling govt to be silent in this issue.

To get remark as a peaceful state, the govt has always avoided to take legal action against illegal business including Chit-Fund cases too. In the Govt Data it was said that the tendency of Ganja production has drastically increased in state eventhough Tripura Police is destroying Ganja Gardens years-wide.

Not only this, Tripura CPI-M's nexus with smugglers across border areas have been proven many times. Minority Welfare Minister Sahid Chowdhury who is much powerful leader at Sonamura was also proven to shelter a terrorist named Mamun Mia (now in Calcutta jai).

Due to lack of action, intentional delay of border fencing are leading such incidents. Moreover, when BSF is taking actions they are suppressed by various false cases. Ganjas are produced openly at Sonamura like tea gardens but due to lack of actions and nexus with smugglers state Tripura has turned jus as a Narcotic den for criminals.
