About #TobaccoFreeBharat
Did you know what causes 50% of all cancer cases in the country directly or indirectly and 13.5 lakh deaths annually - Tobacco!
Every other day, we lose our fellow Indians to this grave addiction. Imagine the plight of a young boy Anish, 9 - who lost his father to throat cancer, and Seema, who lost her young son to tambakhu addiction.
There are many more scary and heartwrenching stories like these as more than 26.6 crore adult Indians, which is close to 25% of the country’s adult population, are consuming tobacco in some form or the other! Scary, right?
But together, we can stop young Indians from burning their lives away. We can save a million lives by strengthening the ‘Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act’ – to achieve a Swasth Bharat.
As the young force of India, its upon us - to be fit and healthy and take our country to glorious heights in the Amrit Kaal. It’s time to #StrengthenCOTPANow and build a #TobaccoFreeBharat, together!

The Bharat of #AmritKaal will be a #TobaccoFreeBharat, Swasth Bharat.
#StrengthenCOTPAnow to save youth from tobacco addiction.
