Modi Government’s Anti-Narcotics Campaign Yields Remarkable Success, Reports Union Home Ministry

Sharp Increase in Arrests and Seizures Reflects Government’s Unwavering Commitment to Combat Drug Menace, Under PM Modi’s Leadership

Srinagar: The Union Home Ministry, under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, has intensified its efforts in combating the pervasive issue of drug trafficking and abuse across the nation. Today, the ministry unveiled three videos showcasing the remarkable success achieved in curbing the menace of narcotics. According to the Home Minister, Amit Shah, the Modi government’s approach has led to a significant surge in arrests and seizures, making life increasingly difficult for criminals involved in the drug trade.

Through a coordinated and collaborative effort among various governmental bodies and law enforcement agencies, an unprecedented crackdown on drug networks has been initiated. This strategy, hailed as an “invincible weapon” against narcotics, has yielded promising results, as evidenced by the remarkable increase in drug seizures and cases filed against traffickers.

The data released by the ministry paints a compelling picture of the government’s unwavering commitment to combating drug-related crimes. Between 2006 and 2013, a total of 1,257 cases were registered, which escalated to 3,755 during the tenure of the Modi government from 2014 to 2023. Similarly, the number of arrests surged from 1,363 in the pre-Modi era to an impressive 5,745 during 2014-2023, marking a four-fold increase.

Moreover, the quantity of drugs seized during the Modi government’s tenure saw a substantial rise, doubling from 1.52 lakh kg between 2006 and 2013 to a staggering 3.95 lakh kg. This monumental achievement underscores the administration’s relentless efforts to dismantle drug networks and safeguard society from the perils of substance abuse.

The value of drugs confiscated during 2006-2013 amounted to Rs 768 crore, reflecting the scale of the illicit drug trade during that period. However, under the proactive leadership of Prime Minister Modi, the value of seized drugs has seen a significant escalation, indicative of the government’s resolute stance against drug trafficking.

The concerted efforts to combat narcotics trafficking and abuse underscore the government’s commitment to creating a drug-free India, ensuring a safer and healthier future for generations to come. With continued vigilance and strategic interventions, the nation is steadfastly marching towards achieving this noble objective.
