Home Minister Amit Shah today asserted that India has a zero-tolerance policy towards the issue of drugs. He said, countries promoting terrorism in India are using the profits from drugs for this and the presence of this dirty money also gradually hollows the economy.
Mr. Shah said this while replying to a short-duration discussion in Lok Sabha on drug abuse and steps taken by the Government. He further stated that the profits being made from the drugs are utilised for terrorism as well. The Minister said, the Government policy is very clear that those consuming drugs are victims, and one should be sensitive towards them and give victims a conducive atmosphere for rehabilitation.
