The police explained the ill-effects of ganja cultivation and how the youths are falling into the trap of substance abuse to the tribals. They exhorted the youth to say 'no' to cannabis.

The ITDA and the police department officials encouraged the youth to avail the employment opportunities provided to them, switch to alternate crops and give up ganja cultivation for good.

Also, they narrated how the innocent tribals were taken for granted by the middlemen and traders. Paderu circle inspector B Sudhakar, SI G Laxman Rao and others took part in the Parivarthana programme that focused on 'Run Against Ganja'.
