Uttar Pradesh Bans Pan Masala and chewing tobacco to fight Corona Virus spread.

Chewing tobacco and Pan Masala leads to incessant spitting. This endangers the lives of others by possible spread of corona virus. Uttar Pradesh is one of the hub of Gutka and Pan Masala manufacturing. UP government has shown exepmplary courage by banning it. I sincerely hope that all states follow the footsteps of the UP government.

The government order banning Pan Masala and chewing tobacco in Uttar Pradesh.
