Health Desk-- 13 May, 2018: Aiming to discourage consumption for saving thousands of human lives annually, anti-tobacco activists at a meeting in Rangpur Saturday stressed on imposing heavy taxation on all tobacco products.

They also demanded for enactment of a single tax policy for tobacco products to replace the present tariff system and slab-based taxation methods on tobacco products to impose heavy flat taxation on all tobacco products.

They came up with the opinion at the Rangpur regional meeting of Anti  Tobacco Media Alliance (ATMA) arranged by the organisation with assistance of  Association for Community Development (ACD) at its Regional Office in the city.

The ATMA member-journalists of the print, electronic and online media from  Rangpur region participated in the meeting with its central committee member and Rangpur Correspondent of the ATN News and ATN Bangla Mahbubul Islam in  the chair.
