Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today took up the issue of Punjab's drug menace and reportedly said that the Congress will end the drug problem in one month if voted to power.

According to an ANI report, Gandhi also lead a protest in Jalandhar against the growing drug menace in the state on Monday.

"Will join the mass protest in Jalandhar on Monday, 13th June, to highlight rampant drug abuse and collapse of law & order in Punjab," Gandhi's office tweeted.

"If Punjab needs a better future, there is no other way but to stop drug menace," said Gandhi.

He also snubbed the Parkash Singh Badal-led Shiromani Akali Dal government and said the party is not going to help if people in Punjab wanted to annihilate the drug abuse menace.

Speaking about the controversy surrounding Udta Punjab, Gandhi said the ruling party was not ready to accept the reality.
