Ban Plastic, Save Cows
Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh
Chouhan recently announced a total ban on plastic bags in the state, effective from May 1. It’s good for the environment, and as the prime minister pointed out, good for cows. So, not unexpectedly, the Hindu Sammelan in Betul on February 8, presided over by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, proved an opportunity for enthusiastic early adoption. Only paper and cloth bags were allowed at the venue.
