JAMMU: Former Minister & Incharge BJP Panchayati Raj Cell Sukhnandan Kumar, while addressing media persons at party headquarter on Thursday, said that drug addiction in J&K is rising and it is also one of the main reason for crime going up here.He said that cases related to rape, theft, murder etc are reported daily which is a serious matter.Flanked by BJP Secretary Arvind Gupta and Spokesperson Balbir Ram Rattan, he said that no doubt that the administration is doing its work well which is seen from the cases of seizing drug consignments in different areas of Jammu as well as Kashmir but still there is need of taking more steps to nab and punish the culprits.He said that stringent laws related to grant of bail in case of peddlers caught with any quantity of drug.He said that a person caught in possession of 5 grams of a drug gets bail within days but it takes long for ones caught with more quantity.Drug is a drug and its quantity should not be parameter for legal action, especially granting bail early or late, he said.Sukhnandan Kumar said that it is also must that Pakistan, which pushes drug consignments into our territory from border routes be told in clear words that India will not tolerate this narco-terrorism to make our youth drug addict.He said that those within J&K, who play as local carriers and suppliers of drugs, must also be identified and punished under law of the land within shortest time.The Ex-Minister also appealed the government to organise awareness campaign to educate the youth in particular about the harmful effects of taking drugs and that they should concentrate on sports, education and their career.He said that the youth is future of a nation and young people should take pledge to keep themselves away from drugs and also take pledge to defeat the nefarious designs of the neighbour country, which has now adopted narco terrorism mode to make youth drug addict in J&K.
