The anti-drug campaign program was organized to create awareness among the prisoners, now suffering imprisonment on different terms for committing drug-related offenses.
A documentary was screened highlighting different anti-social activities, which are now being happened in the society centering the issue of drug-addiction and drug-peddling, to motivate them to come back to normal life.
Besides, a drama styled “Chuk Male Takao” was staged on the jail premises to inspire the jail inmates to give up the habit of drug addiction and drug-peddling.
The prisoners, now in jail for committing drug-related offenses, took an oath that they would always say “no” to drugs and call others to say “no” to drugs.
Jail Super Mohammad Amirul Islam formally administered the oath in presence of Deputy Commissioner, Netrakona Dr. Torun Kanti Shikder.
Police Super Netrakona Joydeb Chowdhory, Civil Surgeon Netrakona Dr. Bijon Kanti Sarker and district jailor Amzad Hossain were, among others, present.
