Anti-spitting bill which was going to be proposed by Public health and family welfare minister Mr.Deepak Sawant should have been proposed in both the houses(Vidhan sabha and Vidhan parishad)and should have been passed long ago in the year 2015-16 according to the minister himself.But yet there is no law regarding spitting in public places.
The Anti-spitting law says-1st time offender has to pay Rs.1000 fine and the offender have to do social service at government hospital/office for one day.2nd time offender has to pay Rs.3000 fine and have to do social service for 3 days.And the 3rd time offender have to pay Rs.5000 fine and have to do service for 5 days.But unfortunately this didn't happen.
On 16th June 2015,a cabinet meeting took place and it was decided to pass the anti-spitting bill within 6 months in both the houses.But it has not happened.
After long time this Anti-spitting bill came in the news in November 2016 i.e after one year and five months.The file regarding anti-spitting bill according to Public health minister Mr.Deepak Sawant was given to Finance ministry.But finance minister Mr.Sudhir Mungantiwar denied it.
This law(Anti-spitting)is very much important and should be enforced as soon as possible.
Drug resistant tuberculosis and viral fevers such as swine flu gets spread due to spitting.Contagious diseases are also spread due to spitting.
Spitting also spreads and increases breeding of bacterias.Government of India runs the Swachha Bharat Abhiyan,which promotes cleanliness and sanitation.Spitting becomes a hurdle in this mission.
It is not possible for one person to go and tell each and every person spitting out there that "please don't spit".There should be a very strict law against spitting which will reduce this practice of spitting in public place.
I hope that at least now Maharashtra government will think and take action on the incomplete work and will bring a strict Anti-spitting law which they should have brought earlier.
1.)Government should ban spitting and impose heavy fines for spitting in public places.
2.)Government should install spitting bins in public places.
3.)Government can create awareness and urge people to use spitting glasses,to spit in the basins available near them,to spit in spitting bins installed near them.
