The Hindu, Madurai, Feb 2017: Stepping up the campaign to prevent use of
banned plastic items, Corporation authorities initiated a door-to-door
awareness programme in association with students of paramedical institute of
Vadamalayan Speciality Hospitals on Thursday. Flagging off a campaign vehicle
and addressing the students, Corporation Commissioner Sandeep Nanduri said that
the objective of the campaign to ban plastic goods was to save the environment.
As a first step, the plan was to ban harmful plastic goods around Meenakshi
Sundareswarar Temple. Once the campaign got translated into results, the city
would be free from the plastic scourge, Mr. Nanduri said.
