Drug menace a national pain, money spent could fund terror: PM

Dec 14,New Delhi: Calling the "devastating" drug addiction menace as a "national pain", a concerned Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the money spent by youth on drugs could be funding terrorism.

In an emotional appeal to youths to say "no" to drugs, asserting that its consumption is neither a 'style statement' nor 'cool', Modi said a toll-free helpline would be set up soon to assist those seeking solutions.
