Why this petition matters

Started by Kaja Ravi Sankar

Government's advertisement indicates that there are nearly 10 lakh deaths every year due to smoking in the country and advises all citizens not to smoke as it is a bad habit which kills.  At the same time, Government or its concerned authorities give permission for its production and sales in every corner of the State - both are contradictory actions.

I need your support for banning of production as well as sales of tobacco products in the State of Delhi / NCR.  Chandigarh is an example for tobacco free city.  Similarly, it can be replicated across the country.  At the same time, discourage farmers who grow tobacco crop and advice to switch over to grow other healthy crops.  Companies that produce tobacco products be also advised to switch over to production of other healthy products.  Citizens can boycott those companies' products if they are producing tobacco products.

World Health Organisation started this 'Tobacco Free Initiative' fifty years back but its success is still not complete.  Request you all to support for complete banning of tobacco use in our daily life and save lives as well as healthcare of our co-citizens.  Active participation is a must.
