MP from Hamirpur Anurag Thakur today announced the launch of the 'Haarega Nasha, Jeetega Himachal' campaign, a movement to free the state from the menace of drugs.
The Quit India Movement began for a free India and today is the beginning of a quit drugs movement in the state, he said.
The MP claimed that the drug menace was engulfing the youth of the state at a fast pace and there was a dire need to curb this menace.
The 'Haarega Nasha, Jeetega Himachal' aims at engaging the youth in order to address this serious concern and create widespread awareness about the ill-effects of drugs, he said.
Likewise, the campaign will educate and encourage them about why they must prevent the use of drugs and discourage people around them too, Thakur said.
"The initiative will empower the youth by entrusting them with the task of building a new Himachal Pradesh. In order to do so, the youth will be appointed as the champions of the campaign," the MP said.
