In pursuance of his firm resolve to make Punjab a drug free state, the Chief Minister on Saturday initiated his two-day whirlwind tour of all the drug de-addiction centres across the state along with experts and key officers of the health department.
Badal visited the drug de-addiction centres at Batala, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar, and Kapurthala and inspected the infrastructure and the medical facilities being offered by these centres to the drug addicts undergoing detoxification in these centres. During interaction with the Chief Minister, drug addicts and their families expressed satisfaction over the state’s drive against the drug menace.
Interacting with mediapersons during his visit at the ESI Hospital centre, the CM — while expressing contentment over the functioning of these centres — said that with the concerted efforts of the state government, Punjab would soon become a “drug-free state”.
