Speaking about the campaign Dilraj Alva said, Substance abuse is becoming more prevalent in our city and increasing circulation of drugs would seriously affect society, particularly harming the younger generation, college-going children, besides promoting other crime. The menace of drugs, which affects the future of youngsters, will have to be removed from the root.”
