THE LOCAL VOCAL

Real voices of Mumbai

The Government has prohibited smoking in public places, but people are still seen smoking in restricted zones. While the authorities say it is being worked upon, do you think it is a lackadaisical attitude that is not solving the problem?

People, especially youngsters, don't understand that passive smoking is more dangerous than active smoking and they themselves should stop doing such acts in public places.

Pregnant ladies and school children are often seen in public places and this habit of people smoking is dangerous for them. Even after making some rules,  some people ignore and sometimes even punishments don't work for them.

Amit Mokal
Civil Engineer

Concerned authorities have implemented rules and it's the duty of people now to follow them. If we cannot do that, we can't blame the authorities for this.

Snehal Kashte
Teacher

These days even college students under 18 years of age are seen smoking. Colleges should make strict rules on their campuses to restrict/prohibit such activities.

Chandrakant Gadhwe
Media person

At some public places, police authorities are placed to maintain law and order.  Those trying to break rules are punished and sometimes put behind bars or fined.

Anita Jadhav
Social Worker

Increased prices of cigarettes have also not worked for such people. Carrying out some awareness activities maybe could help teaching such people that what they are doing is wrong.
