Punjab launches anti-drug campaign, asks educational institutions to join fight
The campaign has been launched by the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of unaided colleges.
The chief minister, along with some of his cabinet colleagues and AICC secretary in-charge of Punjab Asha Kumari, also joined the JAC chairman and took the oath to make the educational campuses drug-free.
Education can play an important role in the fight against drugs, said the chief minister.
Singh also asked the JAC to organize a mass awareness campaign, especially in the rural areas, to sensitize people about the ill-effects of drugs and persuade them to bring their drug-affected children to de-addiction and rehabilitation centers.
