The Pak Banker - - 2national -

RAWALPINDI: To dis­cour­age the in­creas­ing trend of smok­ing, the concerned de­part­ments have been asked to play their ef­fec­tive role for im­ple­men­ta­tion of no smok­ing law in let­ter and spirit to dis­cour­age smok­ing.

Ad­dress­ing a meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, District Co­or­di­na­tion Of­fi­cer ( DCO) Imdad Ul­lah Bosal said that there have been proper rules and laws to dis­cour­age the smok­ing but un­for­tu­nately, these laws are not be­ing im­ple­mented in real spirit.

Imdad said that no so­ci­ety can grow up with­out the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the youths and lamented that youths aged be­tween 12 to 18 years are badly in­volved in this prac­tice. - App
