While interacting with the folks of various villages, the STF Chief hailed the efforts of ladies in village Narang Singh Wala for constituting a drug monitoring committee in the village and exhorted others to follow them.

The STF chief also collected the feedback from the villagers and promised them to take their suggestions directly to Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. She said that the drug menace cannot be wiped out without the people’s participation and urged people to turn this fight against drugs into a mass movement. On this occasion she also shared STF headquarters’ contact numbers and  appealed people to call directly to the STF regarding information about drug smugglers and the informers’ names will be kept secret.

The STF chief urged people to differentiate between drug addicts/drug users and drug smugglers as both of them need different treatment. She asked police officials and people to have a sensitive and human approach toward the former and a strict or harsh approach towards later. 
Addressing the gathering, the Deputy Commissioner Chander Gaind called upon people to start the mass movement against drugs from their villages by setting their village free from the drug menace and appealed the villagers to make combined efforts against the Narco-terrorism so that Ferozepur district can set an example for others to follow.
