Ahead of the festival of Diwali, the Maharashtra government on Wednesday issued guidelines urging people to not burst crackers. Apart from this, the govt has issued directives keeping the air pollution and Covid-19 in mind.
Here are the guidelines.
- Instead of bursting crackers, celebrate Diwali by lighting a lamp.
- Do not overcrowd the market for Diwali shopping and follow Corona rules.
Keeping in mind the anticipated after-effects of Diwali, most states have banned the use of firecrackers, and have urged the public to maintain social distancing.
