New Delhi: BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Thursday alleged that hookah bars in the city were ‘ruining’ the youth of Delhi by turning them into ‘drug addicts’ and sought immediate action from the National Green Tribunal against them.

In a statement, the legislator said that he has written to the NGT Chairperson, alleging these hookah bars are ‘ruining’ the youth of Delhi by turning them into ‘drug addicts’.

"Despite launch of a campaign in the country to contain use of tobacco and ban hookah bars, most hookah bars in Delhi are running on restaurant licenses illegally and selling products that are harmful for the youth," the statement stated.

Attacking the Delhi government, Sirsa said though Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claims to be against drugs, the ground reality is different.
