Stages dharna outside Assembly

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and nominated MLA V. Swaminathan on Monday created a flutter on the Assembly premises by staging a sudden dharna on the steps leading to the Assembly urging the government to impose a total ban on plastics.

Holding a placard, Mr. Swaminathan said that the Tamil Nadu Government had announced the ban on single-use plastics from January 1, 2019. But in Puducherry nothing had been done to relieve people of the nuisance of plastics, he said. The Assembly Watch and Ward Staff held talks with the MLA who later withdrew his protest.
