Hubballi: An interesting discussion took place at the start of the general body meeting of the Hubballi Dharwad Municipal Corporation on Friday. As soon as the meeting began, AIMIM corporator Nazeer Ahemad Honyal raised an objection to providing packaged drinking water bottles to the members.
He asked the mayor whether plastic bottles were not banned in the country, as the HDMC is taking harsh steps to prevent the use of plastic from July 1.
Honyal sought clarification from the HDMC officials on whether the water bottles were banned. HDMC Commissioner Dr Gopal Krishna B said single-use plastic has been banned but water bottles are not on the list, hence there are no restrictions on using pet packaged water bottles.
