After leading a bicycle rally to raise awareness about the dangers of drugs, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann announced that his government was working on a variety of strategies to eradicate the problem.
The government estimates that more than 15,000 cyclists took part in the rally.
Sangrur is a land of revolutionaries, the chief minister declared, and the crowd applauded as he addressed them after raising the flag.
According to an official press release, he stated that the purpose of this rally is to raise public awareness of the drug problem and help the youths who have been affected by it.
With more employment opportunities, Mann argued, there would be no room for drugs in society because of the adage “an idle brain is a devil’s workshop.”
Any seed could germinate in Punjab, but never the seed of hatred. Our social bond is so strong.” And when we’re all in good shape, we’ll be able to put the state on a fast track to prosperity, the CM promised.
He promised that in the days ahead, more such campaigns to raise awareness about the importance of good physical and mental health would be launched.
Mann stated that his government is working on a number of initiatives to eradicate drugs from society, including the opening of additional rehabilitation facilities and clinics to better treat drug addicts.
