    Is Odisha become tobaco free?

    On New Year day, Odisha CM gifted a special gift to the Odisha people by declaring ban against the use of tobacco in Odisha. Every section of people welcomed this bold step taken by the government. We are staying away from Odisha, so are unaware of its ground situations. We feel very happy on that declaration and appreciated our CM Naveen Patanik for initiating such good step for the welfare of people's health. Really, is that rule working actively in our state? Are the habituated people able to stay away from the tobacco?

    As per the action taken by state's (district) administrative officers all Gutka/Tobacco manufacturing companies were seized or banned immediately after the announcement. However, I've seen some top brand pouches still hanging outside beetle shops and some also selling duplicate and local products under their desks. As the initiation is good for the people; as I've seen in cinema halls also some ads shown to create awareness among people. However it is not enough to change their mentality with such a little process. Govt. should create some serious activities to stop or eradicate this issue.
