Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has offered to lead an anti-drugs campaign to be launched by six northern states affected by the drugs menace. Six northern states, including Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Rajasthan, and also the Union Territory of Chandigarh have worked out a joint strategy to fight the drug menace. Here's more on it.
Rawat had a telephonic talk with Sanjay Dutt
"I had a telephonic talk with Sanjay Dutt who was shooting somewhere. He said he had himself suffered much due to drug addiction early in his career and would like to contribute to the campaign against it as its brand ambassador," CM Rawat said.
Sanjay Dutt wants to become the brand ambassador for campaign
Sanjay Dutt expressed his desire to become the brand ambassador for the campaign when Rawat was in Mumbai recently to invite entrepreneurs to invest in the state. A massive campaign to create awareness among youngsters about the ill-effects of drugs is a part of the strategy. The Chief Ministers of the four states, including Rawat, met in Chandigarh last month to discuss the strategy.
