Prof. Rakesh Vaid Director Poonch Campus in his message Congratulated the winners and faculty of Poonch Campus. He also thanked the Head and officials of KVK Poonch. He mentioned in his message that numerous individuals are impacted by plastic bags, including the environment, animals and consumers.

Plastic bags have an impact on us since we all improperly dispose of them and are ignorant of the negative effects of utilising them. According to research, plastic doesn’t disintegrate for 500–1,000 years, so the plastic we use won’t disappear any time soon. The quantity of plastic bags we use is crucial since, after being thrown away, they will only accumulate and cause pollution, which is bad for the environment, he said.

Dr Ajay Gupta Senior Scientist and Head of KVK Poonch and Dr Muzafar Mir, Scientist Horticulture KVK Poonch, SKUAST-JAMMU while speaking on the occasion congratulated Poonch Campus for winning both Debate and Poster competition.

They also mentioned the widespread belief that climate change is primarily a political issue. This leads to the conclusion that only the government or international organisations should handle this crucial issue. Climate change is having an impact on people’s surroundings, and in recent years, unanticipated disasters have been reported. This is amply demonstrating that climate change goes beyond only influencing individuals, families, and communities and all should do their part to protect the environment.

Dr Ajay Gupta informed that various activities including; Save Energy, Save Water, Adopt Sustainable healthy lifestyle, Reduce Waste, E-Waste, Plantation Drive, Say no to Single Use Plastic will be organized about mission LiFE from 20th May to 5th June 2023.
