The Anti Narcotic Club is a club to curb the menace of substance abuse among youngsters. The club envisages every student of the college to be goal oriented and innovative in protecting oneself and others against drugs and alcohol. The activities of club include sensitization programmes through awareness classes, poster exhibitions, organizing campaigns etc. The club supports the proactive interventions by Government, NGOs, deaddiction centers etc for a drug free world.
The extensive use of narcotics within and outside educational institutions has become a serious concern nowadays. Drug dealers target students both as carriers as well as clients. It’s high time for teachers and parents to work against and eradicate this evil force. The highly energetic youth can be guided by educating and at the same time by warning against the adverse effect of narcotics. With this noble intention, we formed anti narcotics club in our college. To keep close contact with the excise and police departments and arrange programs to make the students aware of the strong legal force working against narcotics and inculcate respect towards parents, teachers and the Indian judiciary.
