PM calls for 'revolution' against single-use plastic

New Delhi, Aug 25 (TIWN) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged Indians to launch "a new revolution" to banish single-use plastic so that environment is protected.

The call for a mass movement came days after Modi's Independence Day's address in which he had urged people to shun 'single-use' plastic to protect the environment. In his monthly radio address 'Mann ki Baat', the prime minister also urged people to participate in the annual 'Swachhta Hi Seva' or 'the quest for cleanliness is service' campaign, which will begin on September 11 this year.  "This year, on October 2, when we celebrate Bapu's 150th birth anniversary, we shall not only dedicate to him an India that is open defecation-free but also shall lay the foundation of a new revolution against plastic, by people themselves, throughout the country," he said. He said people from all strata of the society should celebrate Gandhi Jayanti this year as a day to make "Mother India plastic-free".
