'Chinese thread readily available in market; police sleeping'
NSF flays Admin for failure in enforcing ban on Chinese thread
jammu, aug 21: Taking strong note on the quantum of injuries caused due to banned Chinese thread (Gattu), Dr. Vikas Sharma president National Secular Forum (NSF) today flayed the administration for its failure in enforcing blanket ban on the banned thread.
Addressing a press conference, Dr. Vikas Sharma raised question mark on the style of working of police as the banned thread was easily available in the market despite the fact that the district administration has imposed ban on the sale of the same.
"Despite ban, the Chinese thread is not only being sold openly in the markets but steep surge in its use for kite flying has been a serious concern as daily two-three people are receiving mild to serious injuries but the administration in general and the police department in particular seem to be in deep slumber" Sharma said.
A slight contact with the thread while on move can cause severe injuries. In some cases, people have received grievous injuries. It is also a big threat to birds, he added.
He flayed the district administration for passing orders merely on papers and not ensuring its implementation in letter and spirit, endangering the lives of innocent citizens as several people have got injured while coming in contact with this Chinese thread which is used for flying kites.
He demanded from district administration to pass necessary orders to the Police to enforce ban and launch a manhunt to seize the entire quantity of Chinese thread dumped in the market. He also called for sensitizing people against the use of this life consuming material.
He also appealed people to desist from using this thread which is harmful to the lives of others.
Among those who were present in the press-conference included, Surjit Choudhary, Papinder Singh, Narinder Singh and Amit Sanotra.
