Strong families needed to combat drug addiction: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday stressed on the need to protect the youth from drug addiction and said a strong family support system is needed to combat the vice.


“For building a substance-free India, it is imperative for families to be strong as an institution,” he said in a video address to the ‘Ashwamedha Yagya’ event organised by the ‘Gayatri Parivar’.

When family as an institution weakens and its values decline, then it has an all-round impact, he said. When family members do not meet or sit together for days, then dangers rise and, therefore, families have to be strong to make the country drug-free, the prime minister said.
