I urge children to also learn about the chemicals present in the fire crackers and the impact of these chemicals on various parts of human body," the mayor said while launching the 'Harit Diwali'campaign on Monday.
The Mayor appealed to people to celebrate a pollution-free Diwali this year. He said everyone should not only contribute to reducing pollution but also promote use local made 'diyas' to celebrate a safe Diwali.
