To achieve it, the district administration of Rohtak had arranged nearly 4,000 earthen pots to store drinking water, ahead of the rally. The step was taken after PM Modi urged the citizens to stop using single-use plastic and save the environment.

The district administration had appealed to the public not to use the plastic mineral water bottles at the rally venue.

A Haryana cadre IPS officer Pankaj Nain has informed that as many as 3000 earthen pots were used for the first time in Prime Minister Modi’s rally in Rohtak. The move is likely to replace 2 lakhs plastic bottles, he said.

In the rally, PM Modi also appealed to the public to help conserve water by adopting rainwater harvesting techniques.

Rajiv Jain, media advisor to Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar as quoted in an ANI report said, “Use of plastic is harmful to humans and the environment. Several lakhs of people will be participating at the PM’s rally. These earthen pots have been arranged for them. We have bought these pots from Rohtak and nearby districts.”

The Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech had urged citizens to eliminate the use of single-use plastic, besides suggesting that shopkeepers should provide eco-friendly bags to customers. In his Independence Day speech, PM Modi also spoke about launching a new mass movement against single-use plastic from October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

In his monthly “Mann Ki Baat” address too, Modi had said that the time had come for the citizens to join hands in curbing single-use plastic.
