New Delhi :In order to encourage children to take a part in ‘No fire crackers’ campaign, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has written to around 2,000 principals of educational institutions including government and private schools and Delhi University colleges.
In his letter to principals, Sisodia said that in order to discourage use of fire crackers on Diwali for controlling air and noise pollution, Delhi government is conducting a campaign with support of all stakeholders and Eco Clubs.
“Your institutions may accordingly organise various awareness programmes – nukkad nataks, padyatras, seminars, workshops by encouraging maximum participations of students.
“Further, students may be advised to carry the message of “no fire crackers” to their homes and neighbours,” Sisodia said in the letter.
He also said that children being in impressionable age and the budding citizens imbibe values and virtues easily from their educational institutions and they can in turn be instrumental in spreading the message of “no use of fire crackers.”.
“I am sure that your (principals) active support and cooperation in making the anti fire crackers campaign successful will go a long way in reducing pollution levels in the city on Diwali,” the Deputy Chief Minister added.
