Tirumala, 23 Jul. 19: Expressing serious concern on extensive usage of plastic in Tirumala, Tirumala Special Officer Sri AV Dharma Reddy called upon the Seniors Officers to come out with some concrete plans to curb usage of plastic.
During the senior officers meeting held at the camp office of SO in CRO on Tuesday he said, in spite of ban on plastic, there is an extensive usage of plastic bottles. The ban on usage of plastic bottles should be strictly observed in all departments in Tirumala first. Later, in a phased manner it should be extended to pilgrims after making necessary alternative arrangements, he observed. He asked the officers to come up with suggestions for discussion in the next weekly review meeting.
He also asked the police officials to maintain traffic regulation in Tirumala as the parking rules are completely violated by private vehicles in Tirumala.
The Special Officer said, department-wise review meeting will be held with the officers of Tirumala from First week of August onwards.
CE Sri Chandra Sekhar Reddy, SE 2 Sri Ramachandra Reddy, SE Electrical Sri Venkateswarulu and other heads were also present.
