Singh’s statement comes a day after Thoubal district police busted an illegal liquor manufacturing unit in the district and recovered huge quantities of Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) along with unknown chemicals reportedly used in the manufacturing the liquor.

Addressing media in a press conference held at the state Secretariat, Singh said liquor is being produced by some section of the community as a part of their customary practice since time immemorial. This practice, however, is turning into rampant commercial exercise, which leads to adulteration and large scale production of liquor in the recent past, he added.

Concerned over these illicit activities, the CM said there is an urgent need for framing a concrete policy in consultation with experts to check rampant sale and production of adulterated liquor.
