Mathura: Soon after launching a slew of welfare schemes for farmers, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday gave a big push to environmental concerns in Mathura, as he re-emphasised the phasing out of single-use plastic.
“Brajbhoomi has always inspired the world, humanity and life. The entire world is looking for a role model for environmental conservation. But India had inspiration like Lord Krishna whose imagination without environment is impossible,” said the Prime Minister.
Taking forward his pledge to phase out single-use plastic, Modi exhorted Indians to get their homes and offices rid of single-use plastic, before October 2 which also happens to be Gandhi Jayanti.
Modi also launched the National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP) for eradicating foot and mouth disease and Brucellois in livestock.
