Chandigarh (Punjab) [India], January 20 (ANI): Two brothers from Punjab have set up a food truck in their homeland in the state, in a bid to help people shun drugs and lead a normal life.

The duo has done hotel management from a reputed college and had also worked at a luxurious hotel chain in Singapore.

Amanpreet Singh and his cousin Satnam Singh started 'Punjab Rasoi', a van decked up with mouth-watering items of the Punjabi cuisine

They want to send out a message of self-reliance and independence to the young and the ambitious.

A man should have a source of income through his work. When a man is working, he remains focused on his work and doesn't think about drugs or other substance addictions, said Satnam.

The rampant cases of drug menace in Punjab are not new to anyone.

Due to easy availability of drugs, young men can be seen inhaling, snorting or shooting up in abandoned buildings or lush fields in the province.

Earlier, the Punjab government had also expressed concern over the drug menace and gave assurance to curb it.(ANI)
