According to sources Karnataka government has ordered the formation of anti-drug trafficking committees in all educational institutions across the state within a period of one week. Meanwhile the Deputy CM G Parameshwara, who also holds the Home portfolio, took the decision after meeting senior policemen from across the state in Bengaluru and has also asked the Education Department to issue a circular in this regard.
Accordingly the anti-drug committees will be set up in line with the anti-ragging committees, which have been set up to lower incidents of ragging across the country. Moreover in addition to officials of the school or college administration, local police officials and public representatives will also be a part of the drug panel.
As per report Nina Nayak, renowned child rights
activist and the former Chairperson of Karnataka State Commission for
Protection of Child Rights, has welcomed the move. Moreover in
June, on the occasion of International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit
Trafficking, the Karnataka government had also launched a state
government helpline (1098) to report drug abuse.
