The campaign, to start from the Ambedkar University, will feature seminars, street plays and competitions. Several celebrities will be involved in the campaign.

"If police work properly, it can be stopped easily, but they don't have the will," he added. Asserting that strict investigation is needed to end this menace, Gautam said the government can't do it without the help of police. As part of the campaign, the Delhi government proposes to conduct around 1,200 street plays against drug use and has signed 12 drama clubs of various colleges.
