#SirUthakeThuko

With the reopening of paan and ghutka shops in ‘green zones’ and the return of the menace of spitting in public places, we are asking the people to spit up into the sky rather than spitting down.

Everyone spits down, why don’t you spit up and see!

The campaign #SirUthakeThuko targets the people who are habitual paan and tobacco chewers and spit in public places without any hesitation.

It is not only a dirty habit but dangerous particularly in view of the prevailing COVID 19 pandemic.

We are being repeatedly told by doctors that novel corona virus spreads through droplets emanating out of coughing and sneezing and spitting is obviously much more harmful.

It is horrible that people lift their face masks and continue to spit on the roads causing a big menace.

We also appeal to various civic bodies to impose hefty, deterrent fines such as Rs 5,000 per offence and make them clean the spit.  

The spitting menace also defeats the Swachh Bharat spirit and dirties out streets.

Though ghutka is banned in Maharashtra, the addicts have found their own concoction by mixing tobacco with paan masala which is freely available. The sachets were being sold in black as the shops are officially shut.

Corona or no corona, spitting is a huge public menace.

We encounter spit areas before we board an auto-rickshaw or even a taxi. And in other public places such as railway stations and bus stops, the situation is worse.

So, next time you feel like spitting, spit up - #SirUthakeThuko!
