Further, he lauded the efforts taken by NCC Units towards the noble cause of a plastic bag-free world.

Cadets and dignitaries took the pledge against plastic use.

Rev Fr Ashok Rayan Crasta, Principal St Philomena PU College graced the occasion with his presence.

Naval NCC Officer C/T Thejaswi Bhat compered the program. NCC Officers of various units coordinated the program. 5 ANOs and 125 cadets participated in this campaign. 100 paper bags were arranged by one of the cadets’ parents and donated to the NCC Unit of the College.

After the program, Cadets distributed the bags to local shop vendors to create awareness against plastic use.
