Odisha to ban plastic

Odisha, the state which is extensively blessed due to the rich presence of the nature’s wealth of flora and fauna, is set to become an environment friendly state.

The Odisha government, which is ruled by BJD leader Naveen Patnaik, has, while speaking in a program organised to launch an environment scheme of the government, has announced that his government would ban the use of plastic in the state in a step-by-step matter.

It is learned that his ambitious program would commence from October 2, the day the country celebrates as Gandhi Jayanti.

It is said that the ambitious program would be completed within the timeframe of nearly two years.

At least three or more ministries would work jointly for the implementation of the project, as per a report. If what is being circulated is trustworthy, the Housing and Urban Development Department will implement the program in the municipal cooperation and urban local bodies and the Panchayat Raj Department will implement the program in the rural areas. Meanwhile, it is informed that the Forest and Environment department will monitor the overall implementation of the program.

It seems that this ambitious program would gift a big feather on the hat of the Odisha Chief Minister, who is popular for his progressive policies.
