Monsoon Session: BJP MP Ravi Kishan Raises Bollywood Drug Issue In Parliament
During the Lok Sabha session, Ravi Kishan appealed to the Centre to thwart any attempts of drug smuggling via Punjab and Nepal.
Bollywood’s alleged links with drug cartel reached Parliament on Monday (September 14) as BJP MP Ravi Kishan raised the issue and spoke about the impact of narcotics on the film industry. Speaking in Lok Sabha on day One of the Monsoon Session, the BJP MP from Gorakhpur, Ravi Kishan said that the problem of drug trafficking and addiction is on a rise. “Conspiracy is being hatched to destroy the country’s youth, our neighbouring countries are contributing,” the Bhojpuri star said. “Smuggling of drugs from Pakistan and China is done every year. It is brought via Punjab and Nepal,” he alleged.
Alleging that drug addiction is prevalent in the film industry too, Kishan said, “Several people have been apprehended, NCB is doing very good work. I urge the central government to take strict action, apprehend the culprits soon, give them befitting punishment and bring an end to the conspiracy of neighbouring countries.” His remarks came on the first day of the Monsoon Session which is being held amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
