Drug Menace, Serious Problem: Amit Shah In LS | Lokmarg

Union Home minister Amit Shah said in parliament on Wednesday that the drug menace is a serious problem that is destroying generations and the profits being made from drugs are utilized for terrorism as well.

The Union Home Minister Amit Shah was replying to the debate in Lok Sabha under rule 193 on the “Problem of drug abuse in the country and steps taken by the government.”
He said that Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) can conduct probes across the country. “NCB is ready to help each and every state if there’s a need to do an inter-state probe. Even the NIA can help the states if the probe needs to be conducted outside the country,” he added.

Shah also reiterated the Centre’s zero-tolerance policy against drug abuse. “Our govt policy is very clear: those consuming drugs are victims. We should be sensitive towards them and give victims a conducive atmosphere for their rehabilitation. But those involved in drug trafficking should not be spared,” he said.

Shah urged the States and Union Territories to work in synergy against the drug menace. “All the states and UTs have to together fight against the drug menace. We need to stop the entry of drugs through borders, ports, and airports. The revenue department, NCB, and anti-narcotics agencies have to work against the menace of being on the same page,” he said.

Our govt has a zero-tolerance policy towards the issue of drugs. Those countries promoting terrorism in our country are using the profits from drugs for the same. The presence of this dirty money also gradually makes our economy hollow,” he added.

“We have mapped the drug network across the states. No matter how big the criminal is, in the next two years there’ll be a situation that they’ll be behind bars,” he said. (ANI)
