It has not been long since the movie – Udta Punjab ushered a lot of discussion on the grave issue of drug addiction in the state and now, another celebrity from Bollywood seems to give his inputs to curb the same.
According to The Punjab Opioid Dependency Survey (PODS) conducted by the National Drug Dependence Treatment Centre, AIIMS pointed out that the largest concentration of consumers come from economically weaker sections who tend to have limited education and employment.
The 57 years old film actor and producer, Sanjay Balraj Dutt has always been vocal about the ill effects of drug addiction and creating awareness for the same, ever since he has escaped from the shackles of drug addiction.
As stated by dnaindia.com, a source close to him recently said, “Sanjay is keen to visit the heart of the drug issue — the state of Punjab. As the majority of the cases have been identified in this state, the actor himself wants to pay a visit and study the circumstances. Once the elections in Punjab are over, Sanjay will be taking time out and will start the journey of his cause from there.”
Sanjay Dutt along with the assistance of the government, intends to formulate such plans that will totally eradicate the menace of drug addiction in Punjab.
