Letter from Satya Prakash Tiwari to Health Minister Gulam Nabi Azad
Satya Prakash Tiwari developed tongue cancer following habit of gutka chewing. He underwent surgery followed by radiotherapy 2 years back. A civil contractor, he now devotes several hours every day in creating awareness against Gutka in society. He believes that having gory pictorial warnings on tobacco products will deter youngsters from taking up this lethal habit. He was dismayed to see the proposal of lighter and ineffective pictorial warnings on smoking products commencing December 2011. On behalf of VoTV members, Mr Tiwari wrote a letter to the Health Minister.
