Srinagar, May 30: Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra has called for adopting a "missionary approach" to generate greater awareness among people against the adverse effects of tobacco consumption.

The Governor was addressing a one-day "State Level Advocacy Workshop for Sensitizing Stakeholders on Tobacco Control Laws and Measures" here yesterday.

He emphasised that along with effective implementation of the anti-tobacco laws, greater focus must be laid on preventive aspects of smoking followed by curative efforts.

"Similar workshops and interactions are required to be organized at the district and sub-divisional levels to engender awareness to prevent consumption of tobacco in any form," he said.
