Udhampur, June 13: While there is a blanket ban on the use of polythene carry bags in the holy town of Katra same is seen nowhere in Udhampur.
The heaps of garbage here and there in Udhampur town contains maximum of polythene carry bags.This clearly indicates that use of polythene carry bags is very common in Udhampur town despite a ban which Municipal Committee is supposed to implement. "The presence of polythene carry bags clearly exposes the working of Udhampur Municipality," Sushil Singh-a local of Udhampur town told to early times
He also informed that some Municipality employees has become a den of Corrupt practice and the failure of ban on the use of polythene bags is a big example of this. Pawan Raina-a businessman said that the authorities concerned should stop the industries manufacturing polythene carry bags. He further said that apart from this, vehicles entering Udhampur should be properly checked for importing polythene carry bags into the town illegally.
It is pertinent to mention here that polythene carry bags chokes the drains and the dirty water comes out on roads making it difficult for pedestrians to walk on such roads and streets.
Moreover, the experts have opined that the polythene never gets destroyed even if it is kept for 100 years below earth. Many social organizations are working in the direction of discouraging the public on use of polythene carry bags. Certain organizations are also working in Udhampur and their heads have appealed to the Udhampur Municipality to go strictly for Implementing the ban.
