Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu today urged residents of the national capital to segregate waste at their houses and shops to avoid causing damage to the environment. “Bins with different colours should be used to segregate the waste in every house and shop. Green bins should be used for the wet waste and blue for the dry waste,” he said. The urban development minister was addressing a gathering after launching a campaign on segregation of waste at the source in the National Capital Region (NCR) on World Environment Day.

Explaining the ill-effects of the incorrect ways of waste disposal, he said the burning of unsegregated solid waste caused the emission of greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon di-oxide which, in turn, resulted in climate change. He also referred to a study which revealed that 15 diseases, including hepatitis, cholera and malaria, were caused due to improper solid waste management.

On the occasion, an agreement, under which the Delhi Metro will purchase “green” power from the Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services (IL&FS), was signed between the two parties. Besides flagging off segregated waste collection vehicles, Naidu also released a book of cartoons which highlights the importance of solid waste management.

    The poorest of poor live in Bombay India at a place called Dharavi and Modi is not ashamed. he should first think of his poorest before talking big. if u visit Dharavi u will know what India is all about. people sleep on roads and people like Salman crush them at will in their Audi and Land Cruiser and the case is pending for decades in judiciary this is India in nut shell. Judiciary in India is known for delaying justice for even `100 years. poor have no say in their life. they eat left overs from rich and survive. they have no access to any basic needs. they live on footpath and die thier under the wheels of likes of Salman Khan
