DEATH FOR TOBACCO! – 19 de Febrero de 2015 – India

Visit to Tata Memorial strengthened CM Devendra Fadnavis's resolve to banish the substance from the state.

Arming itself with sufficient ammunition to do battle with tobacco in the state, the government has created the Maharashtra Public Health Act, which will impose a complete ban on consumption of all forms of smokeless tobacco in public, making it the first in the country to pass such stringent regulations. Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis hastened the formulation of the act after he consulted senior oncologists at Tata Hospital.

State health minister Dr Deepak Sawant told Mumbai Mirror on Tuesday that former home minister R R Patil's death - of acute oral cancer - gave impetus to the creation of the act and the government's resolve to ban smokeless tobacco in Maharashtra.
