The Tribal Union Chumoukedima Town (TUCT) held a special meeting on September 10, at the Chumoukedima Town Council conference hall to review the promulgation of ban on sale of alcohol and all sorts of banned drugs within its jurisdiction. 

A press release by TUCT joint secretary, Akato Sema stated that, during the meeting the house resolved to adopt a harsher approach towards the ban. The house therefore resolved that anyone caught red-handed indulging in the same activities would be banished from Chumoukedima with a 7-day notice. It also resolved that any type of vehicle found carrying and supplying alcohol and drugs with driver would be confiscated for due process of law. It further resolved that owner(s) of the houses/buildings in question should take note that the TUCT would lock the room or house without serving any separate notice.

The house once again reminded the general public that sufficient grace period had already been granted to bootleggers and peddlers to mend their ways and hence requested one and all to fully cooperate with TUCT and support the movement for a bright future. 

TUCT also issued a stern warning to young boys and girls to immediately stop misbehaving at night under influence of alcohol and drugs. It cautioned that TUCT would carry out regular surveillance to enforce strict restriction which may result in heavy punishments. 

TUCT further stated that some anti-social elements in the guise of national workers were on the prowl demanding taxes through intimidation since the festive seasons were approaching. In this regard the house resolved to deal with such anti-socials activities sternly. It requested the national workers to honour, and adhere to, the popular call of the Nagas “one government one tax”.
