CP Gursharan Singh Sandhu said the aim of the rally was to create awareness against drug menace and educate youth, who fall prey to drugs unknowingly. He said various awareness programmes, including special campaigns against drug abuse, seminars, walkathons, declamation contents, etc, were being organised time to time to spread awareness in public against the ill-effects of drugs.

He further said in light of the Punjab Government’s mission on eradicating drugs from society, the city police have conducted various raids and seized huge quantities of drugs from their possession. He also appealed to the public to support police in this war against drug abuse and share information about the anti-social activities taking place in their surroundings with the police.
