Chaudhry Nisar for expediting anti-drug drive



ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Wednesday directed the district management to expedite the ongoing campaign against drugs’ usage in educational institutions.

He said under a comprehensive strategy with the help of police and Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), strict action would be taken against those who push the youth towards this dark alley.

He said this anti-narcotics drive which had been initiated from Quid-e-Azam University, would be expanded to rural and other nearby areas as well. “By launching awareness drive against the usage of drugs with the help of teachers, parents, students, civil society and media, drug peddlers and drug mafia would be brought to justice,” the minister added.

Nisar said those who were out to eclipse the youths’ future should be dealt with strictly. It may be mentioned that under the direction of the interior minister, a formal drive had already been launched against the usage of drugs in educational institutions from Monday.
