While talking to the press on the sidelines of the event, Tanvir said, “The bike rally is not a stand-alone effort but part of a series of efforts taken by the party to address the growing menace of drug addiction and its prevalence among the youth of Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier the party had constituted a committee which after exhaustive discussions with the subject matter experts in the field of medicines, and community health has submitted a report on the pressing issue.”
He also expressed gratitude to the civil and police administration for making the event successful. He further said that this small effort will go a long way in contributing significantly to the remarkable success of the party’s underway efforts to curb the menace. “It is imperative that we unite and take a stand against this growing threat that has now reached our very doorsteps. It is time for us to awaken to reality,” he added.
