ALL INDIA PARENTS ASSOCIATION AGARWAL BHAWAN, G.T.ROAD, TIS HAZARI, DELHI-110054 To The Chief Minister of Delhi Government of NCT of Delhi Secretariat, New Delhi-110002 08.11.2012 Sub: Ban completely all kinds of fireworks during Dewali Festival Respected Madam, You are aware of the fact that the haze that has covered the Capital for the last seven days is still continuing without any sign of retreat. Nilam, the cyclonic storm that originated over the Bay of Bengal and moved towards Tamil Nadu coast is cited as a reason for this untimely foggy weather. The high density of air pollution in the Capital is also cited as a contributory reason. We are heading for Dewali festival this year. We all know that use of lot of fire-works take place during this festival season. Keeping in view the conditions having been created by the unabated haze over the Capital, it would not be at all in the interest of the health of the people here to allow use of any fire-works during Dewali festival this year. We, therefore, request you to consider for total ban on the use of fire-works during Dewali Festival this year and request you to issue necessary orders immediately in this regard. With regards, Ashok Agarwal, Advocate National President, AIPA M-09811101923
