“Today, I want to share my thoughts with you on a very sensitive and highly urgent matter. This is about the menace of drugs that is dominating the social media dialogue these days. Several highly concerned people have expressed their apprehension and I believe their worry is justified. This menace must be eradicated from its roots forever.” he states.
Highlighting the real reason behind this drug menace of Punjab, Bajwa said devoid of blaming one another, it is the high time to come together against this vicious circle of drug culture thriving in the state, sabotaging a lot many youth’s lives.
