Smoking ban in public places, at least save passive smokersIt is seen smoking in public places is rampant inspite of Court orders not to smoke in public places which creates nuisance to non-smokers who often called as passive smokers.
According to a statistics the cigarette consumption falling steadily but heartening to read women smokers percentage is on the rise not a good trend at all.
It is quite periodically read as over a billion people in India killed due to non-communicable diseases like cancer, heart diseases, yet people chose to smoke even after knowing smoking is the single largest reason for premature heart ailments or diseases.
Inspite of all these trends why the authorities not implementing a complete ban on smoking in public places, is it due to confusion of getting definition of public places or the authorities lethargic in the latter part of the court orders or any pressure from cigarette manufacturing companies or ban may bring down revenue to government?
What is your take on this issue like any additional suggestions to implement a total and complete ban of smoking in public places?
I suggest to enforce stringent actions against smoking in public place at least to save passive smokers.
