Revealing that there are over seven million drug addicts in the country, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday announced that his government would devise a strategy to check drug abuse among the youth.

“Anti-Narcotics Force and National Accountability Bu­r­eau (NAB) alone cannot curb use of narcotics and cor­r­uption, therefore the whole nation and the government will have to make collective efforts to fight the menace,” the prime minister said while addressing an event held at the ANF headquarters in Chaklala, Rawalpindi.

“Seven million drug add­icts in the country in fact means suffering and misery of the same number of families,” he added. Terming co­r­r­uption and narcotics “cancer of society”, he said the government would dev­ise a strategy to check drug abuse among the youth and save the future generations.
