In recent times, it has become customary to burst crackers whenever some VIP politician arrives for some party function.
BJP MLA Suresh Kumar, who was witness to this when he attended a puja ceremony at a party worker’s house recently, asked his party workers to get him a broomstick and they were shocked to see him show the way by sweeping the public road that was full of scattered papers, after bursting of crackers.
Of course, I salute Suresh Kumar and appreciate his concern. Also I humbly request all the party workers (irrespective of political affiliations) to take a pledge “To Stop bursting of crackers in any political function which would result in Noise Pollution, Air Pollution and Land Pollution as well.”
Hope, our Prime Minister Modi would also consider this suggestion and highlight the same in his next “Mann Ki Baat” AIR programme.
