Haryana mission team president of action plan and state chief secretary Sanjeev Kaushal said that about 18 departments like health, medical education, home, excise and taxation and social justice and empowerment are associated with the plan. He said that two apps ‘Prayas’ and ‘Saathi’ have been developed, which will work to curb the usage of banned drugs and a subject of training has also been added.

Haryana DGP PK Agarwal said according to a survey, 272 districts of the country and 10 districts of Haryana have been reported to be affected by drugs, which includes Karnal. He expressed hope that with this effort of the bureau, the state will be able to become drug-free.
