New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh while inaugurating a meeting of BRICS heads of drug control agencies, said “drug abuse and trafficking pose a serious threat to civilised societies and it transcends all organised criminal enterprises.
Today, the drug business generates the highest illegal fund flows and leads to narco-terrorism, which poses a serious threat to global security and endangers peace, health and stability across the regions. We all have to come together to collectively fight against this menace and evil which is assuming threatening proportions.”
He said the problems of drug trafficking and abuse have continued to take significant toll on valuable human lives and productive years of many person around the globe. The Home Minister said the vulnerability of nations to drugs and crime remains a grave concern for global society and the illicit cultivation of opium mainly in Afghanistan and South East Asia and coca bush in South America continues to be a challenge for everyone.
