Imphal, May 6:

Federation of Haomee (FoH) has urged the government of Manipur to declare poppy planters/cultivators as outlaws instead of providing them alternative means for survival.
In a statement by the general secretary of the Youth Wing of FoH said that the move by the state government urging center to give alternative means of survival to the poppy planters is not reasonable. The Manipur government should know that the center is not accepting the proposal because such measures is unreasonable.
“Who plants the poppy? Where do they come from? Why only those people are planting the poppy? These is well aware by the government of Manipur and despite knowing it the government of Manipur seems to be supporting them. Such act should be immediately stopped”, the FoH Youth Wing statement said.
The FoH also question if the government is planning to give alternative means of survival to brown sugar, ganja, drugs , kani etc. smugglers instead of arresting them if they are giving alternative means to the poppy planters which produce those drugs. The statement also said that such an attitude has created apprehension to the people on whether the government is converting the region as another Golden Triangle.
The FoH also said that those outsiders who had illegally influx into the state and planted poppy plants should be sent back to their respective places by enforcing the NRC.
