Pollution Control Board comes out in favour of eco-friendly celebrations

With pollution figures all set to rise because of celebrations on Ganesh Chathurthi, the District Pollution Control Board stressed the importance of celebrating in an eco-friendly manner.

The officers of the Board, supported by the district administration, requested citizens to take care not to pollute local lakes. To help, the Board has created a set of guidelines to help devotees.

To ensure that the festival passes off safely, it has been recommended that the involved committees provide security at processions and ensure that idols are protected, said Robertsonpet Circle Inspector P C Venkatesh.

Addressing various organisations at a peace meet in the City on Sunday, he also explained that guidelines have been provided to the public Ganesha committees. “Ganeshotsav in Robertsonpet and Andersonpet police limits should be held peacefully,” he said.

While noting that KGF has no history of communal violence, Venkatesh expressed his desire to continue the trend. He also asked committees to ensure that loud speakers are kept at a reasonable level of volume and that pendals are set up without affecting the movement of people and vehicles.

Sub Inspectors of Robertsonpet  and Andersonpet, Anjappa and Rangaswamy, were present at the peace meet.
