Minister for Tourism Tassaduq Mufti, while on a visit to Rajouri and Poonch, asked party workers of the Peoples Democratic Party to launch a plastic cleanliness drive, in order to promote the idea of a pollution free environment, and even led the drive.
Some PDP leaders, wishing anonymity, told Greater Kashmir that during his visit of Rajouri and Poonch, at Dehra Ki GaliRajouri and at a shrine in Poonch, the Minister asked the party cadre accompanying him to clean plastic material lying around tourist spots and religious destinations. "He himself led these drives from the front," they said.
"In both these locations, Mufti launched and led these surprise drives, while making party workers a part of it," the leaders said. They added that due to a proactive approach of the Minister, the party cadre accompanying him did not have any other option, but to participate.
