 BJP Urges State Governments to Take All Possible Steps to Curb Drug Abuse
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson G. V. L. Narasimha Rao has urged the state governments to take all possible steps to curb drug abuse rather than just protest against it. He also added that the drug menace has become a serious problem for youths in several parts of the country and more so in a state like Punjab.

The party's reaction came in after the Shiromani Akali Dal's decision to hold a sit-in today near Attari, Hussainiwala and Sadqi check points in Amritsar, Ferozepur and Fazilka border districts respectively, to pitch for greater vigilance along the border with Pakistan to stop the flow of narcotics into the state.

Narasimha Rao said, "I think these protests will be symbolic but there is a responsibility for every party, every government to act against this menace so that we can completely eliminate the problem of drug trafficking and drug abuse. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had talked about this in his program 'Mann Ki Bat' on radio, a few weeks ago. I think political parties are also trying to echo similar sentiments. But, what is expected of the state government is to take all the possible steps in their own command, rather than merely protesting at the international border."
