A press release by KBBB youth department secretary, Wangchah Konyak stated that while speaking at the programme, DC Mon Thavaseelan K said that the fight against drugs initiated by NGOs, students’ unions, churches of Mon district have been commendable.

He challenged them to further the effort in eliminating social evils and assured support from the district administration.

Meanwhile, Konyak union vice president, Hon-ang Konyak urged KBBB youth to follow the teachings of the Bible based on “parable of the lost sheep”.
