3.5 Collective urges MLAs to prevent Manipur from becoming the next Golden Triangle

The 3.5 Collective is a civil society coalition striving to strengthen the movement on the prevention and treatment of substance abuse, including narcotic drugs and harmful use of alcohol.

The 3.5 Collective drew the attention of all the 60 MLAs of the state with regard to the issue of drugs. It then urged the legislators to prevent the state from becoming the next Golden Triangle.

The 3.5 Collective is a civil society coalition striving to strengthen the movement on the prevention and treatment of substance abuse, including narcotic drugs and harmful use of alcohol.

The 3.5 Collective is also among the civil society organisations pressing the state government to appeal against the judgement order of the Special Court (ND&PS) Manipur in connection with the Special Trial Case no 100 of 2018 passed on December 17, 2020 and to pray for re-investigation and re-trial of the case in the high court.

Meanwhile, the 3.5 Collective strongly condemned the alleged detention of protestors, all of them women, by the police when the protestors tried to enter the Manipur Legislative Assembly on Thursday.

On Thursday, a large number of members of as many as 11 women based organisations tried to enter the Manipur Assembly complex while the budget session was going on to discuss the drug menace in Manipur. 

The 3.5 Collective, in a statement on Friday, strongly condemned the alleged detention of the women protestors.

While showing solidarity with the women organisations, the 3.5 Collective strongly demanded that all the MLAs should do whatever is necessary to ensure that Manipur is saved from the “clutches of the invisible, yet highly powerful drug cartel; and prevent it from becoming the next Golden Triangle”.
