Lt Governor launches campaign for Nasha Mukt Jammu Kashmir
JAMMU, SEPTEMBER 01: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha today launched a campaign for Nasha Mukt Jammu Kashmir at an event organized at the convention centre here.
Speaking on the occasion, the Lt Governor asserted that the administration has adopted zero tolerance policy against drug dealers and drug traffickers.
“It is a collective responsibility of the society to join this fight against drug menace”, the Lt Governor said.
Launching a new campaign for ‘drug-free city and drug-free village’, the Lt Governor called upon the representatives from PRIs & Urban Local Bodies to work with the administration and ensure villages and wards are made drug-free with determined efforts and proactive approach.
Drug menace has emerged as a formidable threat to our socio-economic structure, and it is essential that the entire society must come together to uproot this menace and work as a strong unit to make J&K healthy and drug free, said the Lt Governor.
Under the leadership of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, the mass movement against drug addiction has been intensified. J&K Government along with the police, army and other security agencies is working with resolute determination to thwart the neighboring country’s malafide intentions, he added.
Noting that public participation is significant to make J&K fear-free, corruption-free, drug-free and job-oriented, the Lt Governor said that there is need to involve community leaders, doctors, media persons, representatives of voluntary organizations and Panchayati Raj Institutions in the campaign against drug abuse, using popular mass media tools for awareness and evaluating the impact of the campaign to accelerate efforts against drug menace.
