As an individual, I insist and follow the government of Nagaland ban on single-use plastic at home, at my workplaces, on my farm, while travelling and during outdoor activities besides others. Yet, I have seen banned plastic items being used at government offices and government-related functions. At places and premises owned by various government departments. Even hotels owned by the government and those owned by people in the government or working with the government don’t seem to care of the ban either.

Banned plastic items continue to be used not only by the public but also by those working in the government openly at most properties owned by the government. Like venues used for sports, weddings, concert’s etc., which are utilised with the permission of the government authorities.

Hope the Urban Department Advisor, the HOD and those involved in monitoring the ban, the District Administrations of the state and the Town/Municipal Council’s take serious note of Government entities breaking laws and rules made by the government.

Let us not be identified as a state where laws and assurances turn into jokes. Like the NLTP, like the austerity measures promised.

Peter Rutsa, Kohima
