Kathua, Tue, 30 Mar 2010 ANI

Kathua (J-K), Mar 30 (ANI): In its special drive against drug abuse, the 121 battalion of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is organising a seven-day drug de-addiction camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua District.


The aim of the camp, being organised in association with the Ministry of Home Affairs, was to fight social evils in the society and to educate the masses, especially the youth about the ills of drug-abuse.


In this connection, a special rally was taken out on Monday in which students from various educational institutions participated.


V K Tiwari, second-in-command, 121 battalion, CRPF said: "The root cause of militancy is drugs. If the youth choose the wrong path then they get involved in crimes and drug abuse, which in turn gives rise to militancy. So we thought as we fight militancy, why not fight this evil as well. Moreover, the main source of funding of militancy is drugs and it's more dangerous than militancy to our society".


A special check-up camp is also being organised wherein doctors are giving free counselling to the drug-affected youth.


The camp received an overwhelming response with a large number of youth registering their names. (ANI)
