Guwahati Dividers 'Wrapped' in Plastic as Protection Against Pan/Gutka Stains
GUWAHATI: Ahead of PM Modi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe’s visit to Guwahati for the annual summit on December 15, the city is getting a massive face-lift in the way of beautification.
As a part of this beautification, almost all the road dividers in the city are getting fresh coats of paint with workers working round the clock to get it done on time. Meanwhile, to ensure that these dividers remain spick and span till the summit, the entire stretch of dividers along the busy GS Road has been reportedly covered with plastic sheets to tackle the ever-present menace of pan and gutka stains.
As witnessed commonly, a section of Guwahatians without any civic sense simply lower their car windows or slow down their two-wheelers and spit on the dividers. The authorities have now thought up this novel idea to keep them from staining the dividers.
Meanwhile the interesting part is that the this is being used during a year when a plastic-free India is being promoted all over the country.
