Pointing towards SC's decision to ban crackers
in the NCR region, the SGPC president has appealed to Akal Takht
Jathedar Giani Gurbachan Singh to take a lead on same grounds so that
Golden Temple too could be saved from the pollution caused by fireworks
inside the complex.
“I welcome the SC's decision. On our part, we are equally aware of air pollution. The 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev was dedicated to preserve the environment under which green belt was enhanced and plants were distributed to mark the occasion,” SGPC chief Kirpal Singh Badungar said.
“Firecrackers were part and parcel of Gurpurbs
and other special occasions like Bandi Chhor Divas. I have appealed to
Akal Takht Jathedar to intervene and find a concrete way out,” he said.
