He made this remark while attending a programme titled "Workshop on Media aid for Enforcement Activities" at the Environment Department's premises in the capital’s Agargaon yesterday.

The director general said financial penalty or fine is not the ideal solution of environment develop. That will be possible after creating mass awareness on environment.
