Srinagar, 26 June (CNI): Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday said it is the collective responsibility of the society to rehabilitate youngsters who have fallen prey to the drug addiction conspiracy hatched by a neighbouring country.

The LG was addressing cyclists who took part in the ‘Pedal for Peace’ event held here.

“A lot of youngsters have become victims of drug addiction due to the conspiracy of our neighbouring country. It is the collective responsibility of the society to take them out of the muddle and help them achieve their dreams,” Sinha said.

“It is my appeal to you, the youth, to lead this campaign against drug addiction,” he said.

At the award ceremony, the Lt Governor highlighted the key endeavours of the UT Administration to promote sports culture in the J&K UT.

“Pedal for Peace is a symbol of peace, progress and prosperity and all the efforts are being made to ensure that our youth can improve the sporting talents they have, provided with opportunities to excel and their unique qualities are celebrated,” he added.

“Sport as a universal language brings together all sections of society and unites people. It is the most powerful tool for holistic development and helps in achieving broader goals,” the Lt Governor observed.

“I am proud of the new generation of Jammu and Kashmir which is leading this change to peace and development. No power can stop you from touching new heights of development if you are determined to excel,” Sinha added.
