Talking to the media at a press conference on Monday, Punjab ABVP former secretary Ashutosh Tiwari said students’ body activists from across the state would protest outside the Vidhan Sabha against the government’s failure to check drug menace. He said the successive state governments, including the present SAD-BJP government, have failed curb the drug mafia.

He said the ABVP would also demand resumption of student elections in educational institutions in Punjab, which were banned in the 1980s.
