GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Mar 30: The Nigeen Lake Conservation Organization, Chairman, Manzoor Ahmed Wangnoo on Tuesday sought efforts from various quarters for a polythene free City.
In a statement Wangnoo said the polythene menace had badly affected the ecosystem of the City including its water bodies like Dal.
“Now that ban has been enforced. We all must support it by all possible means and fight the menace tooth and nail,” Wangnoo said adding that because of people’s participation Nigeen lake was free of polythene.
He hailed the District Development Commissioner, Meraj Ahmed Kakroo for “seizing a huge cache of polythene bags from the City.”
Recalling the joint efforts past year, Wangnoo said the NLCO in collaboration with Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Department of Tourism, LAWDA and Kashmir University had gone a long way in getting rid of the polythene menace. He made a particular mention of the then SMC Commisioner Khawaja Farooq Ahmed Renzu and termed him “truly eco-friendly” for having played a significant role in getting the ban enforced.
“We need to uphold the same endeavour.”
