He said the government is working in three different ways to bring the drug addicts back to the normal life

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan has said the smuggling of dangerous drug yaba could not be stopped as neighbouring country, Myanmar, has failed to live up to its commitment.

“Myanmar promised on several occasions that they will look into the issue and take steps to stop yaba smuggling, but they have not taken any initiative so far,” he said.

The minister made the statement while addressing a program organized by the Department of Narcotics Control (DNC) at Osmani Memorial Auditorium in Dhaka, marking its 30th anniversary on Thursday, reports UNB.

Asaduzzaman said the government is working on the issue to save the youth from the dangerous clutch of yaba.  

“We are working in three ways -- reducing demand, reducing supply and setting up rehabilitation centres -- to bring the drug addicts back to the normal life,” he added.
