State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam has called for forging social resistance against drug abuse along with its trafficking and trading to protect the young generation from degradation.

“Abuse of drugs not only destroys a man but also destroys the entire family and the society as a whole,” he said while addressing public meetings on the occasion of inaugurating development works at different areas of Charghat upazila in Rajshahi on Saturday.

The state minister also emphasized on establishing a society free from drug addiction to save the young generation from deadly consequences of the menace.

To attain the cherished goal, the law enforcement agencies and the community people should have to work together. 

The community people should extend cooperation towards police with specific information about the criminals, he added.

People and parents in particular should take up the responsibility of protecting the young generation from being involved with crimes.

Upazila Chairman Fakhrul Islam, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Nazmul Haque, Katakhali Pourasva Mayor Abbas Ali, Upazila Engineer Ratan Kumar Fouzder, Charghat Police Station Officer-in-Charge Samit Kumar Kundu and Yousufpur Union Parishad Chairman Shafiul Alam were present during the event.
