“Like our daughters, there is an urgent need to save our sons from the rampant drug abuse,” said Shashi Kant, who is spearheading the campaign against drug menace. Kant said the campaign would be launched in this historic village on December 15 and famous comedian Bhagwant Mann would be present on the occasion.

“It is a well-known fact that a majority of the youths in the state, especially in the border districts, were hooked to drugs,” he said.

He stated that if asked, he would disclose the names of the politicians involved in drug peddling to the Punjab and Haryana High Court.

According to The Tribune (TT): Shashi Kant said dismissed policeman Jagdish Bhola held in a drug racket was only a small fish.
