The Chief Minister held a high-level review meeting on Sunday with senior officials and Ministers after the incidents of supply of drugs came to light.
KCR ordered the officials to investigate all aspects of drug supply and adulteration and take steps that would become a deterrent for those indulging in these activities. “It is paining to read reports that even blood is being adulterated.
Effective steps should be initiated and culprits should be awarded severe punishment like life imprisonment. Officials should explore options to make amendments to the existing acts in this direction,” he said.
