Hundreds converge to see Exhibition seeking ban on Hookah Bars

  The Inaugural function was graced by DSGMC President  Manjit Singh GK who announced to support this cause and initiative taken by Sirsa and said that these bars were a curse on  our society and we will wholeheartedly support this effort to ensure that hookah bars are banned in capital.

            Sirsa, on the occasion, said that this is a historic opportunity in the national capital as for first such exhibition has been organized for muster support for a common cause which is destroying our social fabric. He said that Hookah Bars are destroying the youth of national capital but the government was in deep slumber and least cared to save the youth. He said that now an initiative has been taken and he was thankful to hundreds of persons who have gathered on the occasion to support the action of seeking ban on these bars in national capital.

 He further said  the exhibition aims to spread a message on  the ill-effects of smoking hookah and its main motive is to get enforced a complete ban on Hookah Bars in Delhi. 

            He also said that Hookah smoking is far more dangerous than the cigarette smoking. In one session a smoker can inhale the smoke equivalent to 150 cigarettes smoking.  He said that youngsters in the age group of 13-15 were worst hit by Hookah addiction and it was most unfortunate that 2500 Indians are daily falling in death trap because of this addiction.  He said that many states including Haryana, Punjab, Gujarat and Maharashtra have already imposed ban on Hookah bars in their states.

            Sirsa disclosed that eminent personalities of the society including General JJ Singh former chief of Indian Army, Manoj Tiwari MP and President BJP Delhi, KTS Tulsi Advocate and MP, Parvesh Sahib Singh Verma MP, Mahesh Giri MP, Vikramjit Singh Sahney Padma Sri, Anjana Om Kashyap national icon journalist have decided to support the campaign against Hookah bars in Delhi and support this cause.
