Mr. Sanjay, editor-in-chief of Weekand Times, is fighting for the ban of pan masala sale in the state so that COVID-19 infection doesn’t spread and can be controlled. He is involved in this for one and a half months.
He says as coronavirus cases are repeatedly increasing n number of deaths as well. He wants that sale and reopening of pan shops should be restricted. As people keep spitting around any park, any person’s house, or anywhere, this leads to spreading infection for the virus.
He was shocked after a document came stating what biggest pan masala manufacturing company Rajnigandha said that they manufacture pan masala as a mouth freshener. To this, reports from many doctors got published saying that consuming pan masala leads to many chances of mouth cancers.
He further says that as the company has donated 10 crores to fight against coronavirus, does that mean you can consume such hazardous material violating the policies given by the government.
The court hearing on this serious issue will be on 17th June where companies will be ready with their appealing lawyers. They demanded a video conference call so that they can put their point to make an attempt to save many lives.
To make COVID-19 cases down it is necessary to break the chain of pan masala so that people don’t spit here and there. Pan masala and related products can give a push to the increasing number of COVID-19 patients in the country.
