Menace of Polythene Bags

Kashmir Times. Dated: 2/28/2020 1:09:35 AM

Dear Editor,
It would like to express the menace of polythene bags use in the Union Territory of Jammu-Kashmir through the medium of your esteemed daily newspaper. There is an urgent need for effective implementation of polythene ban in Jammu-Kashmir especially in Doda and Kishtwar Districts due to its fragile ecology .The anti-polythene campaign with the officials often claim to be a huge success may have served the purposes in the cities ammu and Sri navarre somehow.But other ares of Jammu and Srinagar yet to witness effective implementation of the bank rendering important task incomplete. The use of polythene bags outside the twin capital cities of Union Territory continues unabated and there have been no efforts in dissuading people from the usage on sale of polythene bags.Ironically the fragile of heath resorts like Jai Valley Bhaderwah ,Lal Draman Doda ,Gulmarg,Sonamarg,Patnitop ,Sanasa and other places of tourists attraction still reel under threat posed by the non biodegradable products. The ban has met the fate of many policies which were launched with much fanfare but failed you achieve widespread success and remained confined to a specific area or time period .Execution is an important part of any policy and it is is on this count that the officials have failed .After making announcement about the polythene ban the concerned authorities should have ensured its execution across the the length and breath of Union Territory of Jammu-Kashmir .There should have been a proper policy in place to enforce the ban in our Union Territory. The campaigning part on the part of the Govt.also failed to sustain. Usage of polythene is an offence but unless the law is implemented in letter and spirit it cannot be an effective deterrent .The Jammu-Kashmir Municipal Corporation claimed that they had came to learn the lesson of implementing the polythene ban effectively .But the fact remains that there is still a long way to go before claiming our places free from polythene. Last but not least the officials can still take effective steps in uprooting the menace of polythene or special teams must be constituted to ensure implementation of the ban.Beside people and Govt departments should act in unison to fight the menace.
