For the first time, a mass-level awareness campaign against drug abuse has been started on June 26 in Mumbai by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and a few NGOs.
"We work on curbing the supply and trafficking of narcotic drugs but it is also necessary to work on reducing the demand. We started this to convey the message to as many people as possible,'' said Yahodhan Wanage, zonal director, NCB, Mumbai.
Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has been roped in as the face of this campaign. Hoardings, banners and billboards with the message have been put up across the city.
An exhibition stall was put at the Dadar railway station where NCB officials and members of the NGO Sankalp interacted with people.
