The first meeting was held in April last year and the northern states had then decided to set up a centralised secretariat at Panchkula (Haryana) with nodal officers from each stated to be deputed there for intelligence and information sharing. The states had also agreed on a more proactive campaign to fight drugs on a joint platform, with faster sharing of information on drug trends, cases registered and persons identified or arrested.

Captain Amarinder said after today’s meeting with Khattar that his government was committed to the total elimination of drugs, which were being smuggled into Punjab from across the borders, not just from Pakistan but also from within the country, especially Kashmir. He reiterated his government’s zero tolerance policy against drugs. Earlier, the Haryana Chief Minister welcomed Captain Amarinder and presented to him a copy of the Bhagvad Geeta and a memento.
