New Delhi: India is advancing toward becoming a global superpower, according to Rajnath Singh. However, some restrictions keep us from reaching our full potential. One such restriction is drug addiction. Despite having all the advantages, our nation has not yet been able to join the ranks of industrialised nations because a large portion of the population, particularly the youth, is drug-addled.
Through video conferencing, youth from the state directorate and various regions of the nation attended the event. “India is going toward becoming a super power of the globe,” Mr. Rajnath Singh stated. However, some restrictions keep us from reaching our full potential. One such restriction is drug addiction. Despite having all the advantages, our nation has not yet been able to join the ranks of industrialised nations because a large portion of the population, particularly the youth, is drug-addled. The nation’s future lies with its youth. They serve as the country’s cornerstone. It is simple to foresee someone’s future if they are drunk. Like we did for our freedom, we must wage war on drugs.
In addition to having a negative impact on maintaining law and order in society, the drug’s negative effects, according to the defence minister, also encourage terrorism on both a national and international scale. He continued by saying that many international organisations are aware of how money obtained from the illegal drug trade is used to fund terrorist organisations, endangering the national security and defence of numerous nations. He emphasised the urgent necessity for cooperation in order to eradicate this disease from all facets of society. In “Amrit Kal,” the defence minister expressed confidence that all facets of society will work together to rid the nation of the drug epidemic.
Dr. Virender Kumar, Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment, served as co-chair of the discussion programme. The Government of India’s focal department for reducing drug demand is the Department of Social Justice and Empowerment. To raise awareness among youth, children, and the society, the government on August 15, 2020, started Nasha Mukta Bharat Abhiyan A across 272 districts. More than eight crore people have so far joined NMBA, including three crore young people, two crore women, and 1.59 lakh educational institutions. The Department of Social Justice and Empowerment anticipates that with the active participation of NCC cadets, the campaign will reach new heights and the Department will succeed in creating a drug-free India.
