Tezpur, Feb 9 : Tezpur University on Wednesday organised a mega program on Nasha Mukt Bharat (Drug Free India Campaign) at the KBR auditorium of the University. Shri
Kaushal Kishore, hon’ble Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs attended the program as Chief Guest and delivered a compelling address on the transformative
initiative “Nasha Mukt Bharat” on the occasion. Speaking on the occasion, the Minister highlighted the need of the Nasha Mukt Bharat abhiyan and its nationwide campaign aiming at eradicating the scourge of substance abuse amongst youth.

schemes for various stakeholders including the youth to build a Vikshit & Aatmanirbhar
Bharat. However, all such efforts will go in vain, if youth does not stay away from

youth. The first time whenever it is offered, the temptation should be rejected”, the
Minister advised the youth.
