The Deputy Commissioner urged all stakeholders to work collaboratively towards making Doda a “Nasha Mukt” (drug-free) district.
Further, the Deputy Commissioner directed the ARTO Doda to ensure that all buses and matadors display warning posters and stickers about the dangers of tobacco use. He also stressed the importance of maximizing tuberculosis testing as part of the administration’s goal to make the district TB-free.
