He said that the state government has appointed a special task force to tackle the ganja cultivation and its transport.
CS said that the cultivation of ganja is more in the rocky agency areas where the naxals influence is more. He said that due to the rocky surface, it is getting difficult for the force to enter that area and the availability of transport to those areas is almost impossible. CS said that to tackle such situation, the government has planned to provide the force with special vehicles. DGP Samba Shiva Rao was present in this meeting along with CS.
