Maharashtra government launches no smoking campaign

Aizwal: Mizoram government has launched a programme to become a "smoking-free" state.

No person henceforth would be allowed to smoke in open places or in front of a non-smoker. Smoking had already banned in the premises of government offices, educational institutions and health centres across Mizoram, Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla said late Saturday after launching the "Smoke Free Mizoram" programme.

The state government is giving its all out support to the anti-tobacco organisations and activists to strictly enforce the Control of Tobacco Products Act (CTPA) in the state.

Few activists had started an anti-tobacco campaign in Mizoram around 20 years back. During those days, the anti-tobacco activists were laughed upon and people used to mock them. Now, their tireless efforts have begun producing positive results.
