Srei Infrastructure finance limited, Sonata Foundation in association with Kripa Foundation and Bidhan Nagar Police Commission launched a yearlong anti-drug awareness campaign to prevent and also reduce the consumption of drugs among the young population in the city. This event was launched at an event just before the Durga Puja celebrations kick started in the city. Eminent celebrities like Nigel Akkara, Sayani Palit, Prajna and high ranked police officials presided over the event.
The event saw the release of a music album which will be distributed among five hundred community puja committees in the areas around Rajarhat, New Town and Salt Lake. The organizers associated with this event hope to reach out to around fifty lakh people with the help of this music album. The music album CD is dedicated to Late Prasad Guha, founder of Kripa Foundation. Renowned singers like Rupankar Bagchi, Raghab, Jayati Chakravarty, Prajna, Anwesha Dutta Gupta, Sayani Palit, Pranay Dutta have lent their voices to the songs in the music album.
Sixteen eminent dignitaries were also given certificates of appreciation for their contribution to the society. Some of them were from the entertainment field like Nigel Akkara, Prajna, Sayani Palit while others were from the police department.
Nigel Akkara who is also the brand ambassador for the campaign said “It feels great to be getting an award from a police official. This is simply because I have never received one before. I need all your wishes so that I can continue with my good work and get more laurels from the police department in future”.
Singers Prajna and Sayani palit also performed on the occasion and kept the audience enthralled.
With the Durga Puja just around the corner, we hope that this initiative of the Bidhan Nagar police will meet with great success.
