Anie Ribu Joshi, a student of Class 10 in Thrissur, Kerala, has challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to put an end to the menace caused by drug mafias in India. The 15-year-old talks about the issue in a six-minute-long video.

“You once said that if every citizen of the nation is healthy, the nation will be healthy. And do you still think that our country will be healthy with all this drug mafias around?” she asks the PM.

Anie, a student of Sacred Heart Convent Girl’s Higher Secondary School, lost her father to liver cirrhosis when she was four. She told International Business Times that the loss of her father to alcohol consumption motivated her to start an anti-drug project named Fortune-S with 500 students and parents. The team members use social media to share their ideas.

“For the students, of the students, by the students, we introduce you Fortune-S, an anti-drug education mission. The death of my father when I was four, made me take an unbreakable vow to protest and speak against smoke, alcohol and drugs. Let this end with us. Let us stop using alcohol, smoke and drugs for a better world and better future. I challenge you Modi ji, I challenge you,” she says in the video.
