“Unemployment and lack of opportunity are pushing our youth towards drug addiction and other evils which if not curbed in time could pose bigger dangers for the society in near future. The government must aid and support horticulture and Horticulture sector.  The KCC Loan waiver should be done immediately and farmers must be compensated for the loss suffered due to harsh weather conditions,” he said.
