Anti-polythene drive turns violent; 2 hurt
Srinagar, Mar 24: The anti-polythene drive launched by the Srinagar Muncipal Corporation (SMC) took a violent turn on Thursday when some street vendors attacked its officials at Batamaloo here injuring two of them.
Officials said the trouble began when the SMC’s team confiscated polythene from some street vendors at Batamaloo. “The vendors attacked the team and two of our officials including assistant secretary Ghulam Rasool were injured. We have lodged a report against the accused in Police Station Shaheed Gunj,” the SMC Commissioner, Sheikh Mushtaq Ahmad told Greater Kashmir.
He said the anti-polythene drive will continue across the City in coming days. “We are committed to make Srinagar a polythene free zone. But this will be only possible if the people cooperate with us,” the Commissioner said.
