State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam has urged people to forge social movement against drug addiction, its trading and trafficking.

He was addressing a public gathering on raising mass awareness against drug addiction at Bagha Upazila Parishad auditorium in Rajshahi on Saturday.

Shahriar said 80% of drug users belong to the 15 to 30 age group. 

“So there is no alternative to adopt measures of combating addiction of drugs.”

He said maladjustment, rising crime, health hazards, murder, and suicide

are the major consequences of abusing of drugs like heroin, phensedyl, cannabis,

pathedrine, and tranquilizers.

He said the law enforcement agencies alone cannot combat the social disease but community participation coupled with family and social contribution is very important to this end.

A drug-addiction-free society must be built at any cost to protect people, particularly the young generation, from the deadly aggression of the drugs.

The state minister urged the people to cooperate with law enforcement agencies with authentic information about drug traders and traffickers so that they could be brought to book.

Chaired by Upazila Nirbahi Officer Shahin Reja, the meeting was addressed among others, by Deputy Director of Department of Narcotics Control Lutfor Rahman and Medical Officer of Upazila Health Complex Dr Shamsun Nahar.
