Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that his government would be launching a Toll free helpline for young people who are addicted to drugs and want to get rid of it. Talking in the third edition of the 'Mann Ki Baat,' PM Modi said, drugs will lead to 3D [Darkness, Destruction and Devastation].
Speaking Modi said, “Terrorists groups are behind drug suppliers. While our army is protecting the nation at the border, how far it is justice to support these drug suppliers? We are planning to rope to film and sport personalities to create awareness among the young generation to keep them away from drugs and soon we will come with awareness campaigns. Those addicted to drugs, will lead to severe consequence but they don't have a pleasure life.”
The Prime Minister promised to talk about drugs and its addiction in the third edition. However, PM is flooded with letters to address several issues across the country. Modi added that taking drugs has become a fashion and style kind of statement. He also cited Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt as an example who changed post going to jail in the Mumbai serial blasts case. Modi hailed the will power of Jammu & Kashmir cricket team for their thumping win over Mumbai in the Ranji trophy. However, Modi said, it is not about winning or losing, it is the determination of the players showed on their profession in spite of the state getting hit with floods in which all the cricket stadiums and grounds were washed away.
Modi asked parents to take special interest on kids as he feels that parents will have great influence on their children and can change them in any condition. Busy life is keeping parents away from kids and they should make time for kids and spend quality time to them. He appealed to the parents to let the kids speak what they wanted and push them to achieve it.
