Bhuria, President of the MC Udyog Vihar, said, "We all know about the ill effects of climate change and the rise in air pollution, especially during this time when Diwali and stubble burning contributes to smog in Delhi.

Bhagyashree Paul, a cultural committee member of the society calls the dandiya event a diversified cultural event.
