New Delhi: Social activist Kiran Bedi on Sunday praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Mann Ki Baat' programme on All India Radio (AIR) and said that he gave a very important message voicing concern over the “devastating” drug addiction menace.

After the third ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme on radio in which Modi urged youths to shun drugs, Bedi called the Prime Minister an educating and transformating leader.

Describing drug addiction as a psycho-socio-medical problem, Modi said that society and the government will have to work together to fight this problem and that a helpline would be set up soon to assist those seeking solutions.

In the programme the PM also suggested launching a special drive on social media against the menace.
