Our great environmentalists like late Sunder Lal Bahuguna and Dr. Anil Joshi tried to make us aware about environmental and water conservation. Governor said that we have to learn living with following COVID guidelines. Medical waste due to COVID such as used masks, hand gloves , PPE kits must be disposed properly.
