Siliguri, 2nd October: Once again, the Siliguri Municipal Corporation staged a protest against the usage of plastic carry bags in the city. On Wednesday, SMC launched a systematic plastic elimination operation in the regulated market of Siliguri.
The operation was conducted with the help of Pradhan Nagar police. Three shopkeepers were also sent a notice on the charge of possessing plastic carry bags. However, they were not fined.
The locals have alleged that although SMC has taken an initiative to eliminate carry bags, they haven’t taken any step to remove the heap of thermocols in the market.
