Rotary Club of Bikaner Marudhara, RID 3053, and the Rajasthan Police, put together an awareness programme to address drug abuse among adolescents in rural Rajasthan. Rotarians and police personnel urged the student community to join the campaign against drug addiction at various awareness programmes organised by the club for over 15 days.
Through interactive sessions, the students learnt the facts about drugs and how to step out when faced with the challenge.
Addressing the students, IG BL Meena said, “Young boys and girls easily become victims of drug addiction. This will critically impact their lives.” Club President Punit Harsh added that they were pleased to partner with the police and introduce this “important, education programme which will equip the students with the skills and knowledge to prevent abuse before it begins.”
With the cooperation of the Rani Bazar Industry Association, an awareness programme was conducted for taxi drivers who later
pledged against the use of drugs.
