The Chief Minister of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh is trying everything to stop the drug menace in the state.
He wrote to the Union Home Minister to ammend the NDPS Act and provide death penalty to even first time offenders.
Now, he has ordered a mandatory dope test for all government employees, including police personnel.
The screening will be done during recruitment, promotion and at annual medical examination.
Singh has directed the Chief Secretary Karan Avtar Singh to work out the modalities and have notification issued in this regard.
