Post Thermocol, polythene bags seized in Uttarkashi

The Uttarkashi district administration held an anti-polythene bag drive in the town today.
The drive was held under the leadership of Additional District Magistrate Ashok Kumar and Deputy District Magistrate Raj Kumar Pandey at the bus stand and polythene bags were confiscated. Distributors of carry bags were warned not to sell polythene bags to retailers or they would face punitive action. The team also destroyed thermocol, polythene bags and other items confiscated from shops at the main market at Hanuman Chowk.
Officials said the drive that started on February 1 would continue in near future and traders violating the ban would be penalised. District Disaster Response Force officer Devendar Singh Patwal, coordinator from NGO Sudha Vivek Sharma, Bhatwadi Tehsildar Mukesh Chandra Ramola, and the Uttarkashi police station officer BP Kukreti were part of the drive.
Meanwhile, residents of Landour Bazaar held a candlelight march for the reconstruction of clock tower at Mussoorie today.
They also held a signature campaign in support of their demand. Later a delegation of residents and traders led by local trader Anant Pal Singh submitted a memorandum addressed to the President of India through the Mussoorie SDM demanding reconstruction of the clock tower.
Anant Pal said they were holding a symbolic agitation for a just cause and if their demand was not met they would launch an indefinite fast.
Some residents said people should think of doing ‘kar sewa’ (service) for the construction of the clock tower if the government and the local Municipal Council did not do it. Other protesters said the Municipal Council had demolished the clock tower hence it was its duty to reconstruct it.
