Delhi govt to organise 4-day laser show from Oct 26

New Delhi: The Delhi government will organise a four-day laser show from October 26 to encourage people not to burst crackers this Diwali, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday.

The event will be held at Connaught Place, said Kejriwal, who was accompanied by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia at a press conference.

The move also aims at encouraging a community and pollution-free Diwali, the chief minister said.

"Various laser shows will be organised from 6 pm to 10 pm from October 26 to October 29. I invite the people of Delhi to attend the event and celebrate Diwali without firecrackers," Kejriwal said.

Sisodia said it will be a "community Diwali'' where there will be no pollution.

There will be no entry passes for the event. People will have free access to the laser shows, Kejriwal said.

"The whole of Connaught Place will be decorated with laser lights. The laser shows will happen after every one hour, with various art and cultural programmes alongside the laser show. There will be food courts and markets where people can come and enjoy with their families," he said.
