Ludhiana, January 10

Action Against Corruption, an NGO, and other religious and social organisations today held a rally against the banned Chinese string. The rally started from the Ramlila ground, Daresi, and passed through various markets and finally culminated at Clock Tower.

People raised slogans against the sale and use of the banned string.

People taking part in the rally demanded from the police to take strict action against persons selling and using the banned string.

Patron of Action Against Corruption Chandarkant Chadha, who is also a Shiv Sena leader, said the way Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal made a strict law to completely ban the use of plastic string by levying a fine of Rs 2 lakh along with five years of imprisonment, the Punjab Government should also think on the same lines. Many people had lost their lives and got injured due to the deadly string. Still, people could be seen flying kites with it.

He said now, the string was being manufactured in the country and the authorities were not able to take action against any manufacturing unit.

Chadha said their organisation would continue its campaign against the banned string in the future to save precious lives.
