New Delhi: Plastic Cups will not be seen on Railway station. All the railway stations in the country will soon be missing plastic cups. Now you’ll get tea at each and every railways stations in Kulhad. Kulhad is one kind of cup and which is also called an earthenware. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has announced this on Sunday. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said that at every railway station in the country, tea will be sold in eco friendly axes instead of plastic cups. Goyal was addressing a program organized at Dheigwara railway station in Alwar district of Rajasthan. The event was organized at the inauguration of the newly electrified Dheigwara-Bandikui section under North Western Railway. The Railway Minister said that tea is being served in Kulhad at about 400 railway stations in the country. In future, we plan to sell tea only in Kulhad at all railway stations of the country. This initiative will be the contribution of Railways towards a plastic free India. While the ax does not harm the environment. On the other hand, it will provide employment to millions of people. Former railway minister Lalu Prasad introduced ‘Kulhad’ at railway stations 15 years ago, but and paper cups secretly took the place of Kulhad. At present, tea is being sold in paper cups at most railway stations, which is harmful to health on one side. On the other hand, plastic and paper cups are harming the environment. Plastic is very dangerous for our health and if tea is served in plastic cups, it becomes more harmful because it will be too hot and when any og this hot liquid generates some dangerous chemicals in the liquid and which we consume and at that time it becomes unhealthy and dangerous for our health. So, this decision to sell tea in Kulhad, is really appreciable.
