Ferozepur: Using the powers and rights under CRPC the district Magistrate Ferozepur, Balwinder Singh Dhaliwal has imposed the section 144 and banned the use, sale and storing of polythene bags less than 40 micron and those which had been manufactured by recycling process. The DM told that all such recycled and polythene bags below the 40 micron had been effecting the environment, as they block the sewerage system, affect the cleanliness of the area, and causes pollution. Due to the sewerage problems, the people had to face difficulties in the district and affect the human life badly. However these ban orders would be effective till 31st March 2017.
It is to mention here that inspite of the ban imposed by the Supreme court, the district administration had failed badly to implement the orders, rehriwalas, shopkeeprs and veners have been using, seling and storing the banned polythene bags in the district without any fear of the administration and creating a nuisance in the atmosphere. It is to watch how much effect these ban orders would make in the district in the coming days.
