There will be a big change in the day to day life of the people living in U.P. from Sunday 15th July, 2018 when the Yogi Adityanath led UP government ban on the use of plastic, polythene bags and thermocol comes into effect.
In lieu of this on 18th July ’2018 Nagar Nigam Aligarh organized a meeting related to this scheme started by government to protect our environment. In this meeting, societies, NGOs, religious groups and many other known people of Aligarh were present to share their views and to spread awareness regarding plastic Free State. Our Municipal Commissioner Mr. Satya Prakash Patel provides us knowledge regarding Environmental Protection Act, 1990 and Directive Principles of State Policy. Everyone discussed the disadvantages of plastic and they told us how our waste material can be very useful for us, if it is used in effective manner. The President of UDAAN Society, Dr. Gyanendra Mishra shares his views for spreading the awareness and he suggested us to promote the scheme through schools, as young generations are the helpful hands for the development of our country.
