On Monday, Congress VP Rahul Gandhi addresses a protest rally in Jalandhar city and leaned against the drug menace in Punjab state and said that Congress will solve this drug problem if Congress is voted to power. Rahul Gandhi also said, “If Punjab needs a better future, there is no other way but to stop drug menace in the state. On one side there is the drug menace, and on the other, there are law and order, unemployment issues.”
Rahul Gandhi intended that the party will give more authority to the police thus, abolishing the drug problem throughout the state within no longer than a month. He added that there are very few police officers who want this drug problem abolished from within its roots. Rahul Gandhi stated that he was limited by the Shrimoni Akali Dal-BJP combine government in Punjab and was not given enough freedom to function effectively.
