Save City of Temples from becoming ‘Udta Jammu’: Team Jammu

As part of its ongoing campaign to educate people about menace of drug abuse, Team Jammu today organised one day convention of youth in Dhannu Panchayat of remote Mathwar Block, 50 kms from here. Aim of the convention was to take the anti-drug campaign at the remotest and far-flung areas to make the campaign vibrant.
Addressing the convention, Chairman of the Team Jammu, Zorawar Singh Jamwal exhorted the youth to shoulder their responsibility of making Jammu free from the deadly drugs because authorities concerned on its part have failed to keep a check on this menace. He regretted that this menace is slowly gripping entire Jammu region but those at the helm of the affairs have failed to perform their duties to check supply of drugs in Jammu region.
He said that Team Jammu has already started a campaign against drug abuse in Jammu region to liberate youth from the yoke of this deadly menace. “We have already organized a number of anti-drug rallies across Jammu region besides holding seminars, symposiums and convocations to educate people about drugs”, Jamwal said and expressed satisfaction that response of the people is over-whelming and encouraging. He said that Team Jammu is committed to eradicate this menace but support of every section of the society is must to accomplish this task. “I do admit that influential people are involved in Narco business but we are also committed to expose those who have been playing with the lives of innocent youth of this region”, he said.
Calling upon youth to awake from the deep slumber at this crucial time, Jamwal sought to draw attention of youth towards neighbouring Punjab state, where menace of drugs has gripped huge chunk of younger generation.
“It is duty of every youth of Jammu Province to save our region from becoming Udta Jammu because slowly and slowly this region is also going Punjab’s way”, he said and exhorted, “wake up otherwise it will be too late”.
“It is very alarming situation that during the last one year recovery of drugs has increased manifold and so is the cases registered against drug mafia but reports of deaths due to this menace continue to pour in”, Jamwal said, while quoting police records. It is known fact that that narco business has been flourishing in J&K due to nexus between drug peddlers and cops.
Among others who spoke during the convention included Sham Singh, ex-Sarpanch Sain Khan, Mushtak Khan, Numberdar Swarn Singh, Jameet Singh, Parkash Singh, Anil Kumar, Surinder Sharma, Rakesh Sharma, Uttam Singh Chib, Shabil Singh, Ranbir Singh, Des Raj, Sehja Ram and Satish Singh Bobby.
