PM Modi expresses concern over drug menace, says 'It causes huge loss to society and country'

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday expressed his concern over the growing drug menace among the youth and said that the addiction causes a huge loss to society and the country.
In a video address at the Ashwamedha Yagya organized by World Gayatri Pariwar, PM Modi emphasized that drugs are a menace that destroys lives if not controlled. He mentioned that the Centre had launched the "Nasha Mukt Bharat Abhiyan" on August 15, 2020, which had reached almost 11 crore people so far.
"Drugs are a menace that destroys lives if not controlled. Our government started a pan-India Deaddiction campaign 3-4 years ago. Till now, 11 crore people have joined this campaign. Gayatri Pariwar is also connected with this campaign." the PM said.
Earlier, PM Modi was invited to the "Ashwamedh Yagna" being held from February 21 to February 25 in Mumbai. He hailed the Gayatri Pariwar for organizing the event and emphasized that the Yagya is a significant campaign of social resolution that will help free lakhs of youth from the trap of drugs.
"The Ashwamedha Yagya of the Gayatri Pariwar is a huge campaign of social resolution. This campaign will free lakhs of youth from the trap of drugs, and their energy can be used in the building of the nation. The youth are our future... The youth have the responsibility to make 'Viksit Bharat' in this Amrit Kaal," the PM said.
"Any event organized by the World Gayatri Pariwar is always auspicious, and attending it is always special. I am glad that I got an opportunity to participate in this Ashwamedha Yagya. I was in a dilemma when I received an invitation from the World Gayatri Pariwar to attend the Ashwamedha Yagya. Common people associate Ashwamedha Yagya with politics. However, I noticed that this Ashwamedha Yagya is highlighting the feelings of Acharya Shriram Sharma," PM Modi further added.
