Our Endeavors: Fight the Evil
❂ Today, the State has undertaken all efforts within its
available restricted resources to combat the growing
menace of tobacco ill-effects.
❂ But such gigantic mammoth tasks of protecting the
health of the public, especially the youth’s generation
solely cannot lie by enacting legislation and enforcing
these legislation. The NGO’s and other stakeholders
involved in this drive also need to aggressive tackle in
thee same line with which such harmful injurious
products are promoted so that we can save the future.
