No political pollution on Environment day: Aditya Thackeray

Ahead of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah’s visit to Matoshri scheduled on Wednesday to meet Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Shiv Sena Youth Activist Aditya Thackeray refrained to comment over the same.

Aditya Thackeray said that on the occasion of environment day he won’t comment on the politics of the state. “Both the leaders will be meeting tomorrow and it will not be appropriate to speak on the same,” he said.

Speaking on the resignation of state Health Minister Deepak Sawant, Aditya said that Sawant has resigned and will now work for the party. Turning the topic over to the environmental concerns, he said that “Global warming and climate change are a major problem facing the world, and only if the environment prevails, we can survive and our politics too.”

The Sena youth activist was speaking in a programme organised which focused on the ways to disseminate plastic bottles and state Environment Minister Ramdas Kadam and Industries Minister Subhash Desai was also present at the event.  

Environment Minister Ramdas Kadam also expressed his concerns over the rising pollution. Although the Maharashtra government has banned plastic in the state for environmental conservation it is not actually being implemented.

There is 12.5 tonne of plastic made in the state every day and its decomposition is low. He expressed that there is a need to increase the number of plastic decomposition factories.
