"We will have to refuse not only the fire crackers but also Chinese-made products, especially lighting articles, which will play major role in combating air and noise pollution caused during Diwali. 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.
