Mathura: Amid a drive to make river Yamuna pollution free in the holy city, a trust on Saturday claimed it had made Lord Krishna's birthplace free of polythene bags.

The Lord's birthplace had been completely rid of bags made of polythene, the Shri Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sansthan said.

Trust's secretary Kapil Sharma and member Gopeshwar Nath Chaturvedi said all temples in the vicinity of Krishna's birthplace had been made polythene-free.

Only environment-friendly products would be used from today for worship purposes, they said.

A ban on selling products in polythene has also been enforced in the city from today.
