Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he was not against the 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.
