Barely a day after the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh announced that he was ready to undergo a drug test, Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Rana K.P. Singh became the first celebrity to voluntarily undergo a dope test at the Mohali Civil  Hospital in Phase 6.This was the first step in taking forward the state government’s initiative to make the Punjab drug-free.Coming out after the drug test, the Speaker said: “It is very disheartening that Punjab, the land of Gurus and Legendary Warriors, is facing such a menace.”Appreciating the state government’s decision to dismiss tainted cops, he said: “There are some black sheep in the force but most of the police officers are discharging their duty with utmost honesty. Our police force is capable of fighting the drug menace as it fought against terrorism.” Calling for sensitising the youth against drugs, he said there was an urgent need to further increase the vigil on the International border to stop the inflow of drugs.Appealing to all political parties to join hands with the state government in its fight against drugs, the Speaker said there was an urgent need to build a mass movement against drugs, which should be apolitical. “It is a complex problem. Neither did it crop up in days nor will it be cured immediately”, he added.Rana KP Singh said: “If there is a wound on any part of our body, we should treat the wound first, not suggest to amputate that part of the body. We should come forward to solve this problem and bring back Punjab's lost sheen.”
