After PM Modi urging citizens to abandon use of plastic, Lok Sabha Secretariat prohibits use of plastic in Parliament House Complex

After PM Modi urging citizens to abandon the use of plastic in households, the Lok Sabha Secretariat today prohibited the use of non-reusable plastic water bottles and other plastic items within the Parliament House Complex effective from today.

All officers/staff of the Secretariat and other allied agencies working in the Parliament House Complex have been asked to comply with the directions and have been further advised to use environment-friendly/biodegradable bags/materials instead, the official statement says.

It was during the speech on August 15, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged citizens to take significant steps to avoid plastic. He called the nation to achieve this objective while observing the 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on October 2, 2019.
