    Launching the campaign Sangma said, “Plastic is the biggest problem that our country is facing right now, therefore, it is very important that single-use plastic must be banned completely. We should completely stop using plastic as I do.”

    He added, “You will not find plastic bottles in my office, we avoid using plastic files. So, I urge people of the state to avoid using plastic in their day to day life whenever and wherever it is possible.”
