Unfortunately for a UT which has a high education, literacy and development index, increasing drug abuse is also a reality staring at us in the face. It affects a large population of our youth. Right from the urban sectors to the under privileged slums and colonies, children as young as 5 years are exposed to drug and substance abuse. We have to root out drug abuse from its core.
Awareness has to be spread amongst the youth against the ill effects of drug addiction.
There is a need to promote sport in these areas to channelize the youthful energy for productive and healthy pursuits.
