THE loss of traditional and cultural values, the break-up of family units, school dropouts, substance abuse, rape, pornography, peer pressure and suicide are all direct social costs youths and the nation as a whole are paying right now.

That is the view of the People's Democratic Party, which aims to address these issues if it wins the election.

Party Suva branch president Shamal Singh said PDP would address the issues with sensitivity and responsibility.

"The alarming rate of school dropouts and children ending up on the streets is what needs attention," he said.
