Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur flagged off an anti drug rally of school students here on Tuesday, organized by the Press Club in Shimla. Presiding over the programme the Chief Minister emphasized on the role of children in the war againstdrug abuse.

He said that children can give new strength to the anti-drug campaign because their role in the society is vital.

Jai Ram Thakur said that if children restrain, only then it's possible to uproot the evil of drug abuse.

The Chief Minister said that drug abuse is a matter of serious concern not only to the state of Himachal Pradesh but to the nation, as well as the entire world. Stringent laws are in force to prevent drug peddling and if needed, the law would be tightened. But just by making laws, the problem is not going to be solved he added. The Chief Minister lauded the endeavours of Press Club Shimla in the social sector and said that from time to time the Club had organised programs that have social concerns. Many programs such as anti drugs campaign, cleanliness drive, blood donation camps and sports eventswere organized by the club.

He said that it becomes our moral obligation that we shall contribute to stop the danger for the next generation.

"Media can give real momentum to any campaign through articles and writings," Mr Thakur said.
