Chennai, Sep 30, 2019 –

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he was not against use of plastics but was against single-use plastics.

He was speaking to party members who had come to the Chennai airport to receive him. “I am not saying use of plastic should be stopped. What I said single-use plastics should be stopped,” Modi said.

He said the message against single-use plastics should be taken to the people across the country during the padayatra to be undertaken as part of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

“It is always a delight to be back in Chennai. ‘Chennai Makkallaii Santhippathil Magizhchi’ – happy to meet people of Chennai-,” he said.

This is the Prime Minister’s first visit to Tamil Nadu after 2019 elections and he thanked the cadres and people for the warm welcome.

Modi said his quoting Tamil poet Kaniyan Pungundranar’s statement has become the talk of American media.

During his speech at the 75the UN General Assembly Modi highlighted India’s message of inclusiveness quoting the Tamil poet who lived some 3,000 years ago and said, “We belong to all places and we belong to everyone.”

“The sense of belonging beyond borders is unique to India,” he had said.

The Prime Minister was here to attend the 56th convocation of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IITM) and also participate in the prize distribution function of the Singapore-India Hackathon 2019 at the institute.  (Agency)
