On sale of tobacco products


Dear Madam,
Time and again, there are campaigns to stop the sale of gutkha and other tobacco related items in Nagaland, but despite such checks, those items are being sold everywhere. The so-called gutkha has taken new form–paan masala + zarda, which are not only hazardous to health but also causes deadly diseases like cancer. Of late, small children are also found to be consuming those stuff and nobody is there to stop them. Even the health hazard signs on tobacoo packets does not hinder people to buy them. The civil societies should strictly monitor the sale of such products and ban them for ever so that our children do not become victim of the cancerous substances.
Joyson, Dimapur
