Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has greeted people on the occasion of Diwali and Bandi Chhor Diwas, with an appeal to protect the environment through green celebration and total rejection of the harmful practice of stubble burning.

In his message, the Chief Minister called for a pollution-free celebration, exhorting farmers to say `no’ to burning of the paddy straw, while urging people to refrain from bursting crackers. “Let us, on this festive occasion, pledge ourselves to making the environment more livable for ourselves and our future generations, ” he appealed.

Captain Amarinder urged people to celebrate the festival of lights in a traditional manner, with prayers and earthen diyas, in a spirit of harmony and amity.

The Chief Minister has also extended warm greetings to the people, especially the Sikh Panth, on the historic 'Bandi Chhor Diwas', to mark the release of 52 Hindu Princes from the Gwalior fort by Sixth Guru Sri Hargobind Sahib ji during the Diwali festival in the year 1612.

He also wished his best for Vishwakarma Day, hoping that Lord Vishwakarma’s craftsmanship would continue to imbue one and all with the feeling of dignity of labour, and bring prosperity to the lives of the people.
