In yet another innovative initiative aimed at curbing the menace of drugs from Jalandhar, the district administration has constituted 21 drama troupes from the Government schools to sensitize the people especially the youth about this bane at the grass-root level.


These troupes have been formed from the government schools of the district and students from the 9th to 12th class have been specially trained for this purpose. The training sessions and fine tuning of these teams have been done by the Performing Arts department of the Lovely Professional University. These troupes have been mandated to organize plays/ dramas at the village/ town level to ensure that more and more people were made aware of the curse of drugs.


Divulging the details, the Deputy Commissioner Jalandhar Mr. Varinder Kumar Sharma said that the screening of these teams has already been done and on the basis of their performance 21 teams have been shortlisted.


He said that since visuals in form of dramas/ plays cast an indelible imprint on the minds of people, so these teams have been constituted to spread the message of drug free, healthy and prosperous Punjab. Mr. Sharma said that the administration would soon chalk out an elaborate plan for organizing the plays/ dramas of these troupes in such a way that it creates maximum awareness amongst the people in short span of time.


The Deputy Commissioner said that the sole motive of selecting the students for this noble cause was that they could easily connect with the peers in schools and colleges thereby ensuring that the message of war against drugs was delivered efficaciously.


He said that it was all the more important to make sure that school and college going students, who were the most vulnerable sections, could be prevented from falling prey to the menace of drugs. Mr. Sharma said that besides this the administration was also taking a slew of measures to ensure that the curse of drugs was eliminated from the district.
