Apni Party shall launch online awareness campaign to stop rapid drug infestation: Tariq Mohiuddin
Srinagar, November 01: Apni Student’s Union on Tuesday organised an important meeting over the whooping increase in drug addiction cases across Kashmir division especially among the students who are becoming its soft targets.
The meeting of the Students Union functionaries was headed by Apni Students Union Provincial President Kashmir Ibrahim Javid alongwith Apni Party’s Social Media Analyst Tariq Mohiuddin as special invitee.
Speaking on this occasion, Ibrahim stressed on the need for taking necessary measures on all fronts to stop the rapid growth of drug abuse in the society while keeping a special focus on students.
“The most vulnerable to fall into the trap of drug addiction are youngesters especially students who lack requisite exposure & have minimal counselling available to them where they could be pre-emptively warned against the vices & harms of drugs that slowly devastates their mentally and physical health simultaneously,” he said.
Ibrahim said that Apni Party with the help of its strong reach to the people & youngesters through social media platforms will launch a extensive campaign against the virulent drug abuse under the title “Choose To Refuse Drugs” across the valley.
During this meeting Party’s Social Media Analyst Tariq Mohiuddin termed the baleful spread of drugs among the youth and students a matter of great concern which needs to be dealt with effective measures.
“The shocking reality lies in the fact that narcotic substances are easily accessible to the youngesters which poses a looming threat for the whole society to lose the future generations. Apni Party has remained vocally on the forefront to fight this menace and with the launch of this online initiative I am hopeful we will be able to connect to the people & youth in Kashmir and raise awareness among them about the evil of drugs,” he observed.
