Patiala, Jun 13: In the drive to make the Punjabi University campus clean and environment friendly, it has been decided to make the campus smoke and polythene free within next six months.
This will be coupled with a strong health and hygiene crusade by planting medicinal plants and carrying out waste management exercises to make the Campus healthy and beautiful.
Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor Dr Jaspal Singh announced this here today while addressing a newly-constituted 16-member Punjabi University Environment Society.
Holding of flower shows and special exhibitions of seasonal plants will also be made annual features, he said.
