Manjinder Singh Bhullar, an advocate by profession along with his friend Rupinder Singh and five others recently marched all the way from Village Khai Pheme Ki in Ferozepur to Chandigarh to meet Capt. Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister Punjab. “We gave this march the name Drug Awareness March. We wanted to remind the CM about the promise he had made in his manifesto. Few days ago, two youth belonging to our village died due to drug addiction following which we decided to take this step”, said Advocate Manjinder.

“Our Journey was started on June 30th after paying obeisance to martyrs Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev. After covering around 250 kms, we reached Chandigarh on July 6th. Though we could not meet the CM due to his unavailability,  the officials from his office assured our meeting with the CM will take place very soon”, said Advocate Manjinder.

“We interacted with thousands of persons during our march. I just want to say one thing to the mothers whose sons have been trapped into this deadly screws of death that they should not hide the fact from other. They should talk to others and should send their wards to rehabilitation centres”, said Advocate Manjinder.

“The state government should establish a helpline which should be directly connected with CM house. Committees must be constituted at Village level to curb this menace. When we will meet the CM we will show him a presentation which will depict the condition of youth of Punjab. The people gave us valuable information about the drugs being sold in their villages about which we will also apprise the CM.”, said Advocate Manjinder.

“It needs firm determination to bust the nexus between the drug traders and the politicians”, Manjinder summed up with.
