are all hubs of addiction Why doesn’t the government establish a structure to rescue and revive men and women before addiction becomes a habit and crime its accomplice Vinay a former Tihar Jail inmate who has worked closely on drug de-addiction in Jail No3 said “I have met Jyoti Singh’s rapists in jail and I can tell you that they had a history of addiction One of them dropped out of school and got into drug abuse as early as age seven Unless we understand that drug addicts can turn into a threat for anybody it will become difficult for us to protect ourselves from them We may not give them love or sympathy but if they aren’t given attention then we are all at risk” He further said “People think sexual offences aren’t committed for money so there’s no correlation with drugs but that’s untrue Substance abuse induces dark thoughts hyperactivity restlessness and anxiety Actions become unpredictable and an addict probably enjoys that feeling of doing unexpected things” Representational image Reuters “More than 80 percent of the nearly 16000 convicts in Tihar are addicted to tobacco or ganja smack or alcohol” said Vinay who runs the Charitar Nirman Sewadar Trust an NGO working on de-addiction and social reformation He gave the example of a 60-something drug peddler he met in jail who had once confessed to him that he was on his 40th term in jail and was a regular here since his teenage years when he first got exposed to gaanja “There is massive depression and insomnia in jails and the standard procedure of handing out sleeping pills isn’t proving to be effective” Vinay spoke about the need for more counselors to talk people out of depression and give them a second chance at life “Prisoners are alone both in joy and in despair” he said He said that drugs are the only known emotional release for those in jails The see-saw of drug abuse and crime starts swinging early The New Delhi station was earlier home for Rohit and Irfan both of whom worked there as chain snatchers and pickpocketers The two now live in a rehab centre for children far away from the station and recall their days of petty theft “We used to commit several thefts for addiction” they said Many homeless children come to the station in search of a livelihood and end up trapped in drug abuse “Delhi’s big railway stations are home to more than 200 child addicts They mostly pick bottles aluminum foils and cardboards from trains and then spend the Rs 200-300 they make on drugs” Sanjay Gupta director of Childhood Enhancement through Training and Action (CHETNA) told Firstpost CHETNA runs an informal recreation centre for children inside Nizamuddin Police Station in order to foster a friendly relations between the police and street children who are susceptible to drugs and crime “There are two reasons why many children living on railway stations spend their money on drugs Firstly they eat leftovers from the trains so the extra money is still in their pockets at night Secondly if they leave that money in those pockets there’s a good chance that their peers might steal it while they’re asleep So it is safer for them to blow it up on substances like puncture and white fluid” added Sanjay The bond between drugs and crime is a strong one The founder of the Navjyoti Foundation and now Lieutenant Governor of Puducherry Kiran Bedi spoke to Firstpost about a possible way to break it “We need to cut out supply lines The supply lines are a breach in the system What we need to work on is detection By strengthening community policing and intelligence we need to dry those taps through which drugs flow into society” the retired Director General Bureau of Police Research and Development explained The need to strengthen intelligence collection to keep a check on any drug sale made anywhere is what Kiran Bedi considers the first crucial step to curbing the problem The second step is to reform those already in the clasp of addiction “The rehabilitation homes should impart skills to channelise the energy of addicts in a constructive direction and families should bring food for these addicts while they’re in those centres” she said Does Delhi have enough psychiatrists who are trained to re-orient potential criminals Not really The Delhi AIDS Control Society (DACS) made a presentation in March 2017 to the newly formed intersectoral committee set up for a comprehensive response for drug abuse prevention and drug de-addiction services in Delhi under the chairpersonship of the Chief Secretary Delhi Government The DACS said that there is a scarcity of psychiatrists and trained manpower It suggested a plan to train more than 400 medical officers working in 260 Delhi government officer dispensaries and 150 specialists working in 32 Delhi government hospitals on a long-term basis at the Institute of Human Behaviour & Allied Sciences (IHBAS) The presentation also stressed the need to keep an eye on the sale and purchase of addictive medicines in pharmacies and asked medical stores to keep a limited stock of such drugs It also stated that drug licenses of 20 shops had been cancelled last year The Narcotics Branch of the Delhi Police which is also part of the intersectoral committee formed earlier this year made a presentation to the committee in September 2017 The presentation shed light on the fact that under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act 1940 the police has a limited role And cognisance be taken only on the complaint of a Drug Inspector Although recently a provision under Section 36 A(c) has been introduced in this Act the role of the police is still limited to spurious and adulterated drugs The Delhi Police admitted to the committee that it doesn’t have field data in drug demand On the basis of general assessment and seizure it has been able to place the demand in the following sequence: ganja poppy head opium heroin charas pharmaceutical drugs and cocaine The Delhi police further stated that until September 2017 as many as 239 cases were registered and 311 people had already been arrested The Delhi Zonal Unit of the Narcotics Control Bureau also part of the intersectoral committee brought it to the notice of the committee that stakeholders like the Police Excise Customs Directorate of Revenue Intelligence have equal power as per The Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1985 and that they must be activated to multiply force on the war on drugs It added that regular field-level coordination is necessary and parallelly also shared that their unit was falling short of 11 intelligence officers and 10 sepoys It also emphasised on the need to implement Section 64 of the NDPS Act which states: ‘Immunity from prosecution to addicts volunteering for treatment provided that the said immunity from prosecution may be withdrawn if the addict does not undergo the complete treatment for de-addiction’ Most addicts are defiant and in denial of their condition If they accept that they need treatment

they are employed or not (Illustration: C R Sasikumar) Related News Even as it pursues a growth path premised on the agency of private capital Tamil Nadu has been at the forefront of devising a range of social welfare measures targeted at poorer households Driven by electoral promises such interventions have been pronounced particularly since the 2006 assembly elections The two major political parties that have been in power the DMK and the AIADMK have come in for criticism for their “freebie” politics Apart from a well-functioning universal Public Distribution System the two parties between them have offered a slew of household assets like free LPG stoves television sets laptops to students enrolled in secondary education and above mixers and grinders cows and goats to the rural poor and run heavily subsidised food canteens in major urban centres Despite a growing vulnerability of agrarian livelihoods in the state these measures have led to considerable reductions in poverty Thanks largely to such measures Tamil Nadu has emerged as a “model” state with its ability to combine economic growth with high levels of human development In the upcoming elections the DMK’s emphasis has shifted towards better governance with the offer of implementation of a Right to Public Services Act revival of agriculture and job creation The only “freebie” promise in the DMK manifesto this time is tablets for students and free WiFi connectivity The AIADMK however has offered a huge subsidy for scooters and mobile phones This competitive welfarist plank has however been criticised by both the Left and the Right The Right’s criticisms are obvious Fiscal profligacy and handouts don’t make economic sense and importantly they tend to make people lazy The Left has two main disagreements with the welfarist model One “handouts” tend to depoliticise the electorate When the two dominant parties woo voters by offers of “handouts” the electorate tend to be bought off by such schemes The voters tend to therefore ignore the corrupt practices or the unjust economic policies that the two parties pursue The other major criticism of the Left is the revenue model that the state has followed in order to meet its expenditure Since 2003 the Tamil Nadu government has taken over alcohol distribution and sale allowing it to garner substantial revenues through sale of liquor In other words the state wilfully undermines the health of its citizens by pushing liquor sales to pursue its populist agenda Neither the depoliticisation claims of the Left nor the wrong incentivisation argument of the Right are actually tenable Importantly they tend to ignore global trends in welfare interventions in post-colonial societies in the last two decades Despite the push for a neoliberal economic order governments of several countries engage in some form of direct transfers to citizens independent of whether they are employed or not The logic is as follows Unlike the classical capitalist transition that took place in Europe that saw workers move from agriculture to the manufacturing and service sectors this shift has not happened in most parts of the third world While people in the rural areas are dispossessed of their means of production and thrown into the urban areas this movement has not been matched by increases in employment in the “modern” sector as anticipated In India too jobless growth is a recognised phenomenon since the 1990s As a result the classical model of demanding social welfare primarily as workers is limiting argues James Ferguson the renowned anthropologist In his 2015-book Give a Man a Fish: Reflections on the New Politics of Distribution he points out that there has been an increase in non-contributory transfers to citizens in many third world countries because the modern capitalist sector simply cannot absorb the dispossessed population Production of wealth requires less labour than before rendering large segments of the population “surplus” He therefore insists that it is important to move out of a productivist logic of welfare demand and instead privilege issues of distribution outside the domain of production Questioning the current validity of the “teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” argument he claims that this knowledge may not be useful in a world that requires fewer and fewer fishers to net more and more fish Instead it would be better to make a claim on the share of fish caught irrespective of whether one has worked to catch them or not Social wealth owes itself to collective labour and ownership and that ought to be the basis of claim-making Rather than demobilise citizens non-contributory income transfers to the poor may in fact enable new kinds of politics he suggests based on evidence from Brazil Even in the case of Tamil Nadu though the DMK fought the 2011 elections on the basis of fulfilling its previous electoral promises of welfare and promise of more “handouts” it lost as people saw the party to be involved in large scale corruption This is however not to deny the significance of struggles over the dignity of work the quality of economic growth or over the destruction of livelihoods In fact the criticism by some of the other political parties in the state that free rice is being distributed even as agricultural livelihoods are being destroyed is extremely valid Rather Ferguson provides new grounds for expanding the domain of struggles over distribution Such transfers may also actually translate into better investments in education and contribute to the domain of production The allegation about using funds from liquor sales to fund welfare programmes has made it into popular discourse in the state forcing both the DMK and the AIADMK to promise prohibition in some form or the other Existing domain of welfare provisioning is however irreversible given the unpopularity that withdrawal entails Clearly the revenue foregone from prohibition poses challenges for the continuation of welfarist politics by the two parties But the opportunities for forging a new economy of resource mobilisation and a new politics of distribution that this may open up makes for interesting times in the future developmental trajectory of the state The writer is associate professor Madras Institute of Development Studies For all the latest
