Deputy Commissioner Jalandhar Mr. Varinder Kumar Sharma today called upon the students to come forward and become the ambassadors for spreading awareness to encourage the people for not using single use plastic in the district.

Launching a campaign ‘Poly End 2020’-to curb the use of plastic initiated by True Scoop News with the help of Municipal Corporation Jalandhar at Cambridge International School, Choti Baradari, Jalandhar here today, the Deputy Commissioner said that it was the need of the hour to minimize the hazardous effects of the single use plastic.
