TIL Desk/National/Mathura (UP)/ Asking people to shun single use plastic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the wanton use of plastic posed a hazard to the environment and had led to livestock and fish being killed.

Modi was addressing a gathering here after joining women in segregating plastic from waste at the ‘Swachhta Hi Seva’ programme.

The prime minister sat on the ground with women who pick plastic from garbage and helped them out in sorting plastic from waste to drive home a powerful message in his mission to end single-use plastic.
