Federal Minister Ijaz Shah calls on Punjab CM
Federal Minister for Narcotics Control Brig. (R) Ijaz Shah called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office Friday and discussed matters of mutual interests.
Both agreed to adopt collective measures to overcome the menace of the drugs trade and further decided that the federal, as well as the Punjab governments, will launch a joint crackdown against drug peddlers.
The CM emphasised that the elements involved in narcotics trade will be strictly curbed and assured that the police, excise and other departments will provide every assistance to the anti-narcotics force.
The drug traffickers are the enemy of the whole humanity and indiscriminate crackdown will be continued against them, the CM affirmed. Jail is the best place for those selling drugs outside educational institutions and action will be continued against them, he said.
Ijaz Shah stated that the elements involved in the business of narcotics do not deserve any leniency and added that they will be brought under the net of the law in collaboration with the Punjab government.
Joint action will be initiated against drug peddlers, he said and asserted that there is no logic in the institution's bashing. The opposition's specific agenda of maligning the institutions has been fully exposed as the opposition parties are bent upon besmirching the country with their anti-state narrative, he added.
