Early Times Report
Jammu, July 2: Even as the wedding season is at its peak in Kashmir and use of single use disposable items continues to be on rise despite a ban, the government has started raids in Jammu province.
The people of Jammu have said if no such action is initiated in Kashmir where such disposable items made of plastic are used "lavishly with impunity", why is the business fraternity of Jammu being taken hostage.
The business community of Jammu said the authorities in Kashmir don't even dare to inspect business outlets in the valley for violation of norms but that Jammu was being taken for a ride.
As per an official handout, continuing its drive against the single use disposable cutlery items banned vide SRO-231, Anti polythene squad of the J&K SPCB, Jammu carried out raid on the industrial unit manufacturing single use disposable items.
As per an official, during the raid, 56 Carton containing 3000 glasses each, (total 1, 50,000 glasses) were seized legal proceedings have been initiated by the department.
As per SRO 231, single use cutlery items made of non biodegradable materials have been banned by the J&K Govt.
But in Kashmir thousands of such items are sold everyday and government has been silent on initiating action against the traders.
"We challenge the authorities in Kashmir to do one crackdown on sale or use of such items in Kashmir and they will never do the same but Jammu has been taken forgranted," said some Jammuites.
It is pertinent to mention that the government has been silent on various issues with regard to sale of banned items in Kashmir.
The sale of polythene bags has been going on and no wedding is held without the use of disposable items of one time use.
