The students held banners, placards and shouted slogans, giving the message of not using crackers on this festival of lights. A street play was also performed by them at the busy market of sector-50. The rally went further to Logix mall, where students again performed the street play and urged people to celebrate green Diwali by using LED lights, diyas and candles. The team got an overwhelming response by the onlookers. Everyone appreciated the efforts put by the students and teachers for raising voice against such a sensitive issue.
