Siliguri, 10th August: Continuing the crackdown on banned plastic carry bags in the city, the Siliguri Municipal Corporation (SMC) on Tuesday confiscated a huge quantity of banned plastic carry bags from Bidhan Market.
The operation was conducted under the leadership of SMC administrator Goutam Deb, and BoA member Ranjan Sarkar. However, only warnings were given and no fines were imposed on the traders.
Goutam Deb said that they will continue campaigning against plastic carry bags to save the environment of the city. “No one is being fined right now. It will also be ensured that no plastic carry bags are allowed to enter the city,” he added.
On the other hand, Ranjan Sarkar said that operations will be carried out in different markets. A huge amount of plastic carry bags were recovered from several Dashakarma stores. They might be called to SMC with notice.
