medical checkup in hp govt schools

Shimla: Considering the rapidly increasing evil nuisance drug/substance abuse in the youths of Himachal Pradesh, the state government is mulling over introducing a mechanism for regular medical checkups of the school students for early diagnose of signs and symptoms of drug addiction.

It was informed at the Regional Conference of Chief Ministers of Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan, and Administrator of Chandigarh Union Territory held today.

As the States shared their borders with each other, they agreed that it is essential to constitute a joint task force to check cross-border drug peddling.

Other proposals included the formation of a long-term strategy to engage youth in constructive activities and to encourage parents to keep an eye on the behaviour of their teenage children. Abnormal behaviour often results from the circumstances created by addiction.

The entry of synthetic drugs is tightening its grip on the youth including the teenagers at schools.

A large number of crimes could be attributed to substance addictions. Addicts are trying to obtain money to purchase substances/drugs, but when a purchase goes wrong, they need more money, it gives rise to violence and crime. Eradication of drug mafia would also affect the rate of crimes.

The Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, through video conferencing, said that about 1000 arrests had been made in the State against drug peddlers. However, no time period was mentioned.

Further, it was decided that a Common Secretariat would be established in Panchkula in Haryana to check this social vice and all the neighbouring States would appoint a Nodal Officers for effective coordination, it was informed. Uttar Pradesh would also be requested to be part of this campaign and the Chief Ministers of these northern State would meet after every six months in a year and the Secretary-level meeting would be at least four times in a year.

Chief Secretary Vineet Chawdhry, Additional Chief Secretary Dr Shrikant Baldi, Director General of Police S.R. Mardi and ADGP Anurag were present at Shimla and Additional Chief Secretary, Home B.K. Aggarwal and Additional Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister Sanjay Kundu were present at Chandigarh on the occasion.
