    The House, which will meet at 3 pm on Wednesday is likely to be adjourned sine die (when there is no decided date for resumption) around 5 pm after taking up an extended Zero Hour, the sources said.

    NCB IS TRYING INVESTIGATE large drug organisations and entities in Amritsar and Pakistan supplying cocaine and other hard drugs to Mumbai, and to Bollywood. While the NCB is working on tracing the backtrail from consumer to peddler to supplier to those controlling the trade, the emerging picture is one that threatens to roil Bollywood with past and present A-listers and others showing up on the radar of the agency.
    It is a matter of GREAT CONCERN that the drug operations are going on for 2 decades. Drugs were /are imported foreign countries through black money.
    Can we change BOLLYWOOD IN A MONTH OR TWO. IT WILL TAKE A LONG TIME. so, it is better to IMPOSE HEAVIEST FINE ON DRUG CONSUMERS IN TERMS OF SEVERAL CRORES AND CLOSE THE MATTER.
