Yuva Sena president Aaditya Thackeray on Thursday wrote to Union Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu, requesting him to impose a ban on single use disposable plastic within airport premises, along with other eco-friendly measures to control pollution.

In his letter, Thackeray wrote: “If we take the following steps as mandatory for every person, carrier, vehicle in the area of an airport, I believe we may be successful in tackling pollution to a certain extent.”

He also urged Prabhu to ensure that the airports have proper waste segregation and disposal facilities and make it compulsory for all buses and cars operating on airport land to run on electricity. “Big airports can also be made rain water friendly by taking a step towards rain water harvesting,” Thackeray wrote.
