The Indian festival Diwali is now nearer and the officials are thinking of plans to cop up with the consequences of its celebrations. From last few years, it is happening that Diwali festivities cause smog in and around the capital of India.
The Delhi government has a plan this time to cop up with the smoke post Diwali celebrations. It has shared a plan of action which is quite ambitious. Delhi’s Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal has announced that the odd-even rule will once again come into force.
Apart from making this announcement, CM Kejriwal also gave out warning to people to not to use firecrackers and he said instead of firecrackers, a grand laser show will be organised on the eve of Diwali.
Delhi CM said that on Diwali, burning of firecrackers cause massive smoke in the air and the smoke gets trapped, as a result of which it becomes difficult to breathe in India’s capital.
The CM appealed to Delhi people saying that do not use fire crackers. On the evening of Chhoti Diwali, Delhi government will organise a laser show.
Arvind Kejriwal has also said that before and after Diwali, water sprinklers and mechanised sweeping system will be used to control dust particles on the roads and it will be their topmost priorities.
According to some reports, from the month of October, the Delhi government will start distributing N-95 category mask in large numbers. Talking about N95 category mask, it is a disposable safety device that covers the nose and mouth. When a person wears it, he/she is protected from breathing the small particles in the air such as dust and mold.
