Cartoon exhibition on air pollution



Ashok was speaking at the inauguration of a Cartoon Exhibition at Chitrakala Parishat on Wednesday as part of the activities for ‘Air Pollution Control Month - November 2009’. The exhibition organised by the Karnataka Cartoonists Association along with the Transport department was inaugurated by actor Ramya. Over 70 cartoons by cartoonists from all over the state were displayed. Over 200 entries came from about 75 participants for the competition and the cartoonists of the association also gave away prizes.

 Meanwhile, the Minister said that it had become hard to call the city ‘Garden City’ anymore and spoke about the importance of rejuvenating the lakes. Actor Ramya, who did her bit by drawing a caricature of what seemed like a BMTC bus billowing smoke said that the Government should consider an exchange scheme for old autorickshaws with new eco-friendly ones. In response, Ashok also said that a study between the amount of pollution caused by a bus and 50 luxury cars will set the matter straight.
