During this, foreign tourists present on the ghats also fully cooperated in this.
The tourists, along with the Kashi area coordinator of the organization Rajesh Shukla, requested the citizens present at the ghat not to forget to keep cloth bags with them while leaving the market. During this, polythene was thrown in the dustbin by giving bags to the people carrying polythene traveling on the ghat. Rajesh Shukla said that the beauty and health of the city is being affected due to polythene.
In Kashi, the city of religion and tourism, polythene has hurt many aspects. Due to this, along with the contamination of the Ganges, the drains and drains of the city are getting choked. Ground water is also getting damaged. In such a situation, a concerted campaign should be launched against polythene by taking initiative from everyone’s side.
