On Monday, a 16-year-old boy from Mansa district in Punjab allegedly shot his mother dead with his father’s licensed gun, after she had refused to give him money to buy drugs. The father was not at home when this incident happened. He later filed a police complaint against his son. The boy was arrested on Wednesday.
 
How are drugs drowning Punjab?
Punjab’s drug problem has reached new dimensions. More than 75% youth in Punjab are hooked to dangerous drugs like heroin and cocaine. Of the 75%, more than 30% are believed to be HIV positive.  The National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) has flagged the increasing number of HIV-positive individuals from Punjab, NACO has also said, the increase is due to injected drug users. Punjab also reports 50 % of the total drug users in the country.

Punjab’s drug menace has reached epic proportions, the awareness about the addiction is growing among the citizens of our country. Addiction comes with its negative effects that destabilize social equation, family culture and the loved ones of the addict have to watch the addicts implode and spoil their lives.

The Logical Indian requests the Parliamentarians, the people and the civil society to keep the discussion and awareness campaign on the drug issue of Punjab alive and together we can win over the drug menace and the fellow citizens who are losing their lives.
