Reduce Menace of Tobacco Consumption and Illicit Trade of Tobacco Products: Modi

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said World No Tobacco Day was a day to "reaffirm our commitment" to reduce the menace of tobacco consumption. "World No Tobacco Day reminds us of the harms associated with tobacco consumption and a day to reaffirm our commitment to reduce this menace," he said in a tweet.

The prime minister added that the World Health Organization's (WHO) "focus on stopping illicit trade of tobacco products is a laudatory effort that will help in minimizing tobacco consumption".

According to the WHO, tobacco causes over five million deaths world wide which is likely to increase to 8.4 million if the situation is not brought under control.

May 31 is observed as World No Tobacco Day.
