To make the city drugs-free and curb the drug menace, Hyderabad city police are conducting various Anti-Drug Awareness campaigns. One such awareness campaign was conducted by the North Zone Police of Hyderabad on Thursday. Minister for Animal Husbandry and Cinematography Talasani Srinivas Yadav launched this Anti-Drug Awareness campaign in the Balamrai area which was attended by youngsters.
Addressing the gathering, State Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav said, “ Creating awareness among people is an important factor to prevent drug abuse.” He emphasised drug addiction can be addressed effectively if the topic is included in the academic curriculum. The idea behind the anti-drug campaign is to sensitise youth against the use of drugs, he added. The Minister requested the people to help police in curbing the drug menace.
