To observe the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, Ferozepurians led by deputy commissioner Chander Gaind took part in the cycle rally. People expressed solidarity against drugs and pledged together to wipe out this menace from the district.
DC flagged off the Rally at 5.30am which after passing through town hall, Shaheed Udham Singh Chowk, Multani Chowk, Makhu Gate, Bagi Park culminated at Shaheed Bhagat Singh Stadium.
Leading the event from the front, the deputy commissioner himself participated in the rally and rode a bicycle in the loop. En route to the culmination point, Mr. Gaind stopped at Town Hall and Bagi Park, where he interacted with the people, especially morning walkers. In his interaction with the people, the deputy commissioner solicited support from people in order to wipe out the drug menace completely.
Ha said that if the people of Punjab can eliminate terrorism then they can also combat Narco-Terrorism, they just need to be united against this abuse. He called upon people to stand together against drugs suppliers, oppose them openly, protest against them and inform the police and special task force against the perpetrators of this act. He ensured people that the suppliers will not be able to withstand the mass opposition.
Sharing STF headquarters' contact number i.e. 79019-59595, 79019-39393 with the general public, the deputy commissioner exhorted people to complain against smugglers without any fear and ensured them the prompt action will be taken on their inputs.
Further, he appealed people to form Mohalla level committees against drug abuse and work as eye and ears of the district administration and police, adding that he expressed hope that these committees will work as a catalyst against this menace besides sensitizing people to make this war on drugs a mass movement.
Addressing the children participating in the cycle rally, Gaind motivated them to be aware of this menace. He exhorted students to help people stuck in the drugs and help them get rid of this problem besides treating them as patients. He asked parents instill a behavior in their children against drugs so that they can learn to handle this problem during their primitive days.
