Employment is the biggest solution to drug problem in Punjab: Bhagwant Mann

Mumbai/IBNS: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann Friday said the state government is implementing proper measures to increase employment in the state.

“We want to push the youth of Punjab in the right direction and are implementing proper measures to increase employment in the state," said Mann.

Speaking at ABP Network’s second edition of the ‘Ideas of India’ summit on the topic of “Naya Bharat – Reinventing Punjab Beyond Guns and Drugs”, he said, “When the people of Punjab will be working, they won’t have time to indulge in ill habits such as drugs as they will be focused towards work and spending time with their families.”

In the session, Bhagwant Mann discussed the efforts made by the Punjab government to fight the drug problem in the state. “We have announced recruitment of 2100-2200 Constables and around 500 Sub-Inspector positions every year for citizens of Punjab,” he said.

The recruitment test will comprise a written, physical and medical test, including a Dopamine test to prevent the usage of drugs by the youth.

Furthermore, the Punjab government “has requested MHA for anti-drone testing” in their mission to fight against drugs.

He also emphasized the growth of the state in the past few months such as establishing better infrastructure and promoting industrialization.

"Punjab will be the pioneer in colour coding of stamp papers for sanction of all NOCs," he said.

“The possession of the green stamp paper means you have all NOCs and are legal to set up a factory in the region.”

Furthermore, the Punjab government is also providing free electricity to around 87% of its population.

The summit promises an invigorating line-up of speakers with prominent figures from the world of business, politics, artists from the Hindi Film Industry, authors and other eminent sectors.

The two-day conference confluences diverse ideas from various industries to promote India in becoming a burgeoning leader in the world.
