MANJA_chinese

Andhra Pradesh govt. has banned Chinese ‘manja’. It is the sharp string used to fly kites during festivals.

AP govt. took this action after the letter written by the union ministry of environment highlighting the threats posed by ‘manja’ to birds. The ministry has issued an order to ban ‘manja’, which is made of nylon and is coated with finely crushed glass.

It also banned other synthetic threads coated with glass which are likely to cause injury to animals and birds. All the departments have been directed to spread this message among people.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) played a key role in procuring ban on ‘manja’.
