Chennai: “Mundra port in Gujarat is number 1 in drug smuggling. That is where most of the smuggling is taking place. The central government should take steps to completely ban all the drugs brought here from Afghanistan via Iran,” Tamil Nadu Higher Education Minister Ponmudi said.
Higher Education Minister Ponmudi met the media today at Anna Institute, Chennai. He then said: “Gujarat is the biggest drug market in India. It is also where the traffic of drugs is highest.
Especially the port in Gujarat. It has been privatized. Drugs are imported here from abroad. The reason why it has increased many times now is that these drugs imported from abroad are being smuggled through ports where they are privately owned.
In particular, Mundra port in Gujarat is number 1. It is there that most of the smuggling is taking place. The central government should take steps to completely ban all drugs brought here from Afghanistan via Iran.
Although the opposition parties demanded to stop this smuggling through private ports, they did not do so. That’s why everything like this has developed in Tamil Nadu too,” he said.
