Second speed train flagged off Vande Bharat Express.
Regarding this, Home Minister Shah wrote in his tweet, ‘Indian Railways has started using mud axes at 400 stations in the direction of calling for Modi ji to stop using single use plastic. This will not only benefit the environment but also promote Indian handicrafts and employment. Today I too enjoyed Kulhar tea.
Other Union ministers also drank water from steel bottle.
The use of single-use plastic has been completely banned from October 2 (Gandhi Jayanti) to save the environment. No longer can single-use plastic products like thin foil found in goods, plastic tea cups on the road, water bottles, cold drink bottles and cold drink straws be used. Now if you are found to be using single use plastic then you will have to pay a fine. Single-use plastics cause harm to the environment as well as these plastics do not recycle. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has targeted to free India from single-use plastic by 2022. In his speech from the Red Fort, he appealed to the countrymen to stop using single-use plastic. To completely ban this, PM Modi chose the day of Gandhi Jayanti. Now that single use plastic has been banned across the country.
