RATNANAGAR, Jan 4: Locals of the Bharatpur Metropolitan City organized a demonstration in Bharatpur today to press the municipal officials to rid the city of chewing tobacco products like Gutkha.
The demonstration was organized under the coordination of the 'Way Group', an organization formed through facebook. It was held in front of the metropolitan city office. The rally is organized a day before the Bharatpur Metropolitan City holds its town assembly meeting.
The participants of the rally representing various organizations were carrying placards calling for banning Gutkha-like chewing tobacco products in Bharatpur Metropolitan City, arguing that apart from harming the human health the pouches of Gutkha and other brands of chewing tobacco thrown carelessly here and there were contributing to the increasing pollution.
The rally which started from Lions Chowk in Narayangadh turned into a demonstration upon reaching the Bharatpur metropolis office. It passed through local Sahid Chowk and Pulchowk on the way. RSS
