Outfits write to PM on warnings on tobacco packs

Over 500 organisations have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly advocating the implementation of new pictorial warnings on all tobacco packs from April 1.

The appeal comes amid demands from tobacco companies for reconsideration of the government order to have pictorial warnings on both sides and covering 85 per cent of the pack.

Representatives of women groups, youth associations, hospitals, self-help groups and voluntary organisations were among those who sent 4000 signed letters to the PM.
