Malicious attempts are being made to push J&K’s Youth into the menace of drugs keeping them away from the mainstream. Let us all reaffirm our resolve and take a firm stance against drug abuse to give a befitting reply to Narco-Terrorism and bring back the misguided youth into mainstream arena, asserted the Lt Governor.Addressing the youth, the Lt Governor advised them to move ahead, participate in the development process and be role models for others.“I have full faith in the potential of the youth of J&K. We are committed to connect the present and future generations with the hopes and aspirations of their progress and build a society in which the Youth is the key driver of the development and prosperity of J&K”, the Lt Governor said.Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has paved the way for combating drug abuse through the National Action Plan for Drug Demand Reduction in 2018 which is having a greater impact in  rooting out the evil of drugs from the society, the Lt Governor observed.The Lt Governor also underlined the importance of implementing multi pronged strategies like effective prevention strategies based on the community level and having an awaked social setting. “Now is the time for more synergized and comprehensive efforts to fight drug menace”, he said.Along with this, the youth clubs that have been set up in all the panchayats and wards of urban local bodies in Jammu and Kashmir will act as a catalyst in this direction, he added.The Lt Governor expressed happiness over the awareness programs that are being run in Rajouri, Kishtwar, Budgam districts by connecting Gram Sabha and Anganwadi workers to this campaign.The Lt Governor asked the DCs to identify fake de-addiction centers being run in both the Jammu and Kashmir divisions and take action against such centers within the ambit of law.

Speaking on the occasion, the Union Minister Dr Virendra Kumar commended the administration of 10 districts of J&K for performing well under this campaign and tackling the social evil of drug menace to a larger extent.“This award ceremony showcases the great work of people whose tireless efforts have reduced this problem across the country”, the Union Minister said.The Union Minister highlighted the important role of public representatives, PRIs, local population and NGOs in making the society drug-free.On the occasion, the Union Minister also announced that a special camp for specially-abled people at Jammu and Srinagar will be held soon for the distribution of various aids to them.Meanwhile, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Radhika Chakarvarthy gave a brief background of Nasha Mukt Bharat Abhiyan across the country.A rehabilitated substance user also spoke on the occasion and narrated the ill effects of drug abuse faced by him and his family.
