Mysuru, January 1:- “Despite knowing the hazards of using plastic and its products, people continue to remain ignorant. We also have a major problem in waste management. It is our foremost duty to stop using plastic to keep the city clean,” said MLA Vasu here on Monday.
He was speaking after inaugurating cleanliness drive at Sadvidya Institutions in the city.
“Plastic is being used everywhere. It has increased the amount of waste collected in the city. Though campaigns were made to create awareness on the use of plastic, it has not come down. The public should understand the importance of reducing using plastic to help keep our city clean,” he added.
MCC commissioner G Jagadish requested the public to actively participate in Swachhata campaign to make the city cleanest in the country.
