Municipal Corporation (MC) Mayor Jagdish Raj Raja, MC Commissioner Diprava Lakra and Jalandhar Smart City Limited Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jitendra Jorwal distributed jute bags among reidents in Old Sabji Mandi near Patel Chowk on Saturday morning to spread awareness against the use of polythene carry bags.

They said these environment-friendly bags could be instrumental in eliminating environmental problems being caused by plastic bags. The need of the hour was to make sure that only these bags should be used by people.

The drive was started with support from ICICI Bank Jalandhar.

Prominent among present on the occasion included Municipal Corporation Joint Commissioner Harcharan Singh, MC Health Officer Dr Shri Krishan Sharma and Anuj from ICICI Bank.
