Ludhiana MLAs and District Administration today launched an awareness drive for the ban of single-use plastic and encouraged the people to use jute and cloth bags to protect the environment from hazardous effects of plastic.This drive was launched in the presence of MLAs Sarvjit Kaur Manuke, Rajinder Pal Kaur Chhina, Daljit Singh Grewal, Jiwan Singh Sangowal, Kulwant Singh Sidhu, Ashok Parashar Pappi, Hakam Singh Thekedar and DC Surabhi Malik.

Participating in a district level function organized in the local Government College for Girls, Bharat Nagar Chowk, MLAs and Deputy Commissioner said that single-use plastic items were used only once and thrown into the environment by the people.
