V. C. Sebastian, Secretary, CBCI Laity Council in a press release.
“People across the various sectors including students and the youth will participate in this national level awareness programme. The danger signals of organized terrorism and narcotism which enervate the governmental set up and the legal system, spreading its tentacles in different domains, should not be underrated,” the press release read.

Popularisation programmes through the social media against narcotism and terrorism, tableaus, seminars, discussions, family visits, formation of local level solidarity groups etc will be organized.
