Aurangabad, Jan 13:
The sale or use of nylon manja is prohibited. But shockingly, the banned manja is being sold on various online shopping websites and is being delivered to the buyer's doorstep within a few days. The police nor the administration have any control over the purchase and sale of online manja. Hence there is a high chance that still citizens might use this dangerous thread on Makar Sankranti.
The number of civilians injured or losing their lives due to Nylin Manja is increasing every year. The court and the government have also banned the sale, purchase and use of nylon manja as birds and animals also get injured. Police are also raiding shops and confiscating nylon manja and taking strict action against the sellers. On the other hand, some online shopping websites are selling different types of nylon manja without fear of any action. What is special is that after purchasing the manja through these websites, it is directly delivered at home within two to three days. The court's order is being challenged in one way or another, as many people buy nylon manja online to avoid police action. As the sale of this deadly thread continues, there is a need for the government to take steps to ban the sale of this manja online.
