Guwahati: With rising incidents of drug abuse among youths across Assam in northeast India, a leading non-government organization of the region launched a mass awareness campaign about it with an aim to save the upcoming generation from the impending danger. We are deeply concerned about the growing drug menace in Assam. The rising trend of drug abuse among youths, more particularly in the student community, is really alarming,” said  Khasrul Islam of Ajmal Foundation.

Speaking to scribes at Guwahati Press Club on 12 May, the Ajmal Foundation executive added that they would start a series of awareness meets at educational institutions in Assam to sensitize the students, teachers and guardians. It may be mentioned that the Ajmal CSR initiative takes care of nearly  100 institutions in Assam, where the awareness programs are planned to make the drug abuser & peddlers a non-entity in the society.
