    Instead of conducting raids on plastic MCC pay attention to inspect all the pot holed and deteriorated roads and take up immediate repairs. Human life is very precious than this bloody plastic.

    Why the Govt is not ordering to shutdown the Plastic carry bag manufacturing factories and not cancelling their license instead of riding poor shopkeepers ???

    Yea, this is the multimillainaire question that comes to ones mind. Why cant the Govt. issue directions to the Plastic Industries not to produce prohibited plastics instead of raiding the shops. There is no meaning in it.

    ನನಗೆ ನಗು ತಡೆಯಲಾಗದ ಕ್ಷಣ
    ................. 😀😀😀............................

    ನಾನು ಅಂಗಡಿಗೆ ಹೋದೆ.

    ಅಂಗಡಿಯಾತನತ್ರ 10 ರುಪಾಯಿಯ ಬಿಸ್ಕತ್ ಕೇಳಿದೆ.

    ಆತ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಸುಂದರವಾಗಿ ಪ್ಯಾಕ್ ಮಾಡಿದ ಬಿಸ್ಕತ್ತನ್ನು ಕೊಟ್ಟ.

    100 ಗ್ರಾಂ ಟೀ ಹುಡಿ ಕೇಳಿದೆ.

    ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಕವರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ಯಾಕ್ ಮಾಡಿದ ಟೀ ಹುಡಿಯನ್ನು ಕೊಟ್ಟ.

    ಅರ್ಧ ಲೀಟರ್ ನಂದಿನಿ ಹಾಲನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿದಾಗಲೂ ಕೂಡಾ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಕವರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ಯಾಕ್ ಮಡಿ್ದನ್ನೇ ಕೊಟ್ಟ.

    ದೇವರಿಗೆ ದೀಪ ಹಚ್ಚಲು ದೀಪದ ಎಣ್ಣೆಯನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿದಾಗಲೂ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಕವರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ಯಾಕ್ ಮಾಡಿದ ಎಣ್ಣೆಯ‌ನ್ನೇ ಕೊಟ್ಟ.

    5 ರುಪಾಯಿಯ ಲೆಯ್ಸ್ ಕೇಳಿದಾಗಲೂ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯ ಡಿಸೈನ್ ಇರುವ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಪ್ಯಾಕನ್ನೇ ಕೊಟ್ಟ.

    ನಾನು ಮೆಣಸಿನ ಹುಡಿ, ಅರಶಿನ ಹುಡಿ , ಸಾಂಬಾರಿನ ಹುಡಿ ಹೀಗೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ಕೆಲವು ಸಾಮಾನುಗಳನ್ನು ಖರೀದಿಸಿದೆಲ್ಲವೂ ಬಣ್ಣಬಣ್ಣದ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಪ್ಯಾಕ್ ಗಳದ್ದೇ ಆಗಿದ್ದವು.

    ಕೊನೆಗೆ ನಾನು ಬಿಲ್ ಕೊಟ್ಟು, ಅಂಗಡಿಯಾತನತ್ರ - ಈ ಸಾಮಾನುಗಳನ್ನು ಹಾಕಲು ಒಂದು ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ಕವರನ್ನು ಕೊಡಿ ಅಂತ ಕೇಳಿದೆ.

    ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಅಂಗಡಿಯಾತ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾನೆ -
    ನಮ್ಮ ಈ ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ಲಾಸ್ಟಿಕ್ ನಿಷೇಧಿಸಲಾಗಿದೆ ಅಂತ....!

    Tired of hearing Ban Plastic, Ban Plastic...its not working out...., Most of the products packed in plastic wrapers. Rather than disturbing common people government should come up recycling plastic bags.

    Government should open plastic bags receiving counter or machines where citizens can deposit and gain few points or cash. That plastic bags should go for recycling for different products.

    This will help minimizing wastage of plastic bags and maximizing usage of plastics.

    I hope government and authorities can be more productive and advance thinkers rather than disturbing people.

    Other than penalty, ban, fines, taxes, service charges can we hear something good from the governemnt? feels like government is behind poor and middleclass to rob them.

    This is what we wanted from elected representatives? ... If we choose uneducated, unethical government this is what we will get. Its our fault now we have to suffer.

    When a person buys grocery from a Supermarket, he is receiving most of the items wrapped in plastic materials, but at the check out point, the cashier tells you, Plastics bags are banned in our city and you need to pay rupees 10 for jute bag to carry those item with plastic wrappers.

    Plastic bags are banned in many cities including Mumbai. Jute or cotton bags are durable, can be used for longer time and finally can be burnt for manure without causing environmental damage or pollution.

    Chocolates, Milk, curd, Chips and hundreds of other items wrapped in plastic bags, but no one is bothered to charge those multinationals. Their only target is poor people who carry fish in plastic bags.

    Over 40 years ago plastic bags were rarely seen in the markets. Fish vendors never gave plastic bags. Washable cloth bags were used for carrying fish with water dripping all the way.

    Raid all soft targets if corporation has guts let stop the inflow from non-other than Ambani petrochemicals.

    Ask them for portholes in the road even in concrete roads they have no voice.

    Ask them for open sewage flow in the city they have no voice.

    Totaly corporation has hired environmental engineers who know not or have no clue to find a way to make use of plastic profitably.

    Present learning system encourages rote learning but unable to solve the issues.
