“Drug menace is ruining the families and also the system. Telangana is known for movements. Unfortunate that drug abuse is rampant in the state. Drug addicts are committing crimes under the influence of Ganja( Cannabis). Narcotic drugs are the main reason for increasing violence against children,” said Revanth Reddy while flagging-off the Anti-Narcotic Bureau’s new vehicles.

Revanth Reddy said that the government will award promotions to officials who work hard to end the “drug menace”. He appealed to the media to focus more on problems being faced in the society rather than “political controversies”. “Media has the responsibility to disseminate information regarding the good programs which are being taken up by the government,” he stated.

The Telangana chief minister also extended his gratitude to Tollywood actor Chiranjeevi, who is a partner in the awareness programmes against drug abuse. Revanth Reddy stated that the film industry has the social responsibility of “safeguarding” the society.
