Under the Kalgidhar Trust, Baru Sahib’s initiative ‘Samaaj Sudhaar Kranti’ that is to create awareness about the hazards of Drugs Addiction amongst the youth of Punjab, which is getting ruined in the swamp of drug abuse, today, the students of Akal Academy Cheema Sahib organized an awareness rally against Drug Abuse & Addiction.
The rally was flagged off from local ‘Zilla Organizing Complex’ by Deputy Commisioner S.Pritam Singh Johal. Whilst addressing, he said that the increasing affect of drug addiction amongst the youth is a critical challenge and each citizen alongside members of political, religious and social groups, need to come together to take a combative stance to tackle the problem. On this occasion, S.Johal Singh was honored by the Akal Academy.
Around 250 students participated in the rally, who held anti addiction slogans in their hands and hailed the messages in loud voice to create awareness about addiction amongst the people. The rally, starting from D.C. Complex took the course through bus stand at big chowk to reach it’s conclusive phase at Patiala gate. For the event D.P.R.O Manjeet Singh Bakshi, Akal Academy’s Vice Principal Manjeet Kaur Virk were also present alongside other members.
