Grounded in the realization that the efforts by the Police, STF and tri-forces may not be sufficient in combating the drug menace, school children, public officials and ordinary citizens alike took a pledge today to play an active role in eradicating drugs from the country.

Citizens across the country took the Bakmaha Divuruma, a national pledge to eradicate drugs and to confirm their commitment to control and eliminate drugs this morning.
