Reasi, May 15
As a part of ongoing Swachhta week, District Development Commissioner, Ravinder Kumar, distributed jute bags among people after replacing polythene bags from them at bus stand here today.
The jute bags were provided by Municipality Reasi in the form of a demonstration measure to encourage and motivate people for using bio-degradable material to keep their surrounding green and clean.
Number of fruit shops and business points were inspected by the DDC and officers from other departments.
The move was very innovative when the polythene bags being carried by the customers were replaced with jute bags in the bazaar without imposing any penalty or fine as a corrective measure.
DDC, while speaking to the people, stressed on developing pro-environs habits and asked them not to throw filth and garbage in open and contribute towards environment being a responsible citizen.
He impressed upon the shopkeepers to desist from supplying and providing goods in polythene bag and motivate the costumers for carrying individual bag so that they do no long rely on poly bags.
