No Fire Crackers During Gandhi Jayanti Functions: Goa Chief Minister

PANAJI: 

The practice of bursting fire crackers during Gandhi Jayanti celebrations will be discontinued by the state government, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said on Wednesday.

Mahatma Gandhi was a true environmentalist and bursting fire crackers is not in sync with good environment practices, the Chief Minister said.

“From next year, it is necessary to stop bursting crackers. Gandhi was a true environmentalist. Government servants should take note of it,” Mr Sawant said at a function held in Old Goa, near Panaji to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the ‘Father of the Nation’.

Mr Sawant also said, that the ban on single-use plastic in Goa had come into effect on Wednesday, in furtherance with Mahatma Gandhi’s belief in environment conservation.
