Dwarka: Municipal Corporation of Dwarka has joined hands with the community people to make Dwarka free from plastic. At an event organised at Sector 6 market premises, MCD announced the launch of the flagship program earlier announced by Lt Governor of Delhi, VK Saxena to make Delhi free from plastic.

He said that at first the Sector 6 and Sector 10 markets would be made plastic free and the gradually the entire city would be made plastic free with the involvement of RWAs, market associations and NGOs. 

“We have to make Dwarka plastic free and we must take pledge to fulfill our target. Discouraging the use of plastic and increasing the use of alternative options like jute bags, cloths, bags etc would be very effective in making the campaign successful.”

Raksha The Saviour and Matrix  contributed cloth and jute bags to distribute to the community people and the officials to give a message of plastic free Dwarka.
