"Plastic waste is perilous and presents genuine danger to live stocks. It stifles channels, traps fowls and murders animals separated from causing genuine wellbeing dangers to people. This is a little advance to secure the earth and the soundness of individuals," said Kotpad NAC Executive Officer Alok Samantaray.
