Pasumai Thayagam, the Pattali Makkal Katchi’s environment wing, launched a ‘Zero Waste Tamil Nadu’ campaign in Hogenakkal on Saturday.

Party leader and Dharmapuri MP Anbumani Ramadoss spearheaded a 1000-strong party volunteers covering the popular tourist spot of Hogenakkal.  The ‘Zero Waste Tamil Nadu’ was launched as a State-wide campaign marking the Pasumai Thayagam day. Each year, the day is observed with a concept, and the environment conservation wing of the PMK had earlier taken up tobacco eradication, sapling plantation campaigns earlier. 

On Saturday, over 50 gunny bags of garbage, primarily plastic bottles, thermocole, and clothes were carted away. A large chunk of the garbage cleared were clothes washed ashore or dumped in the water ways.
