The Delhi government will organise a four-day laser show starting from October 26, a move aimed to encourage people to not burst crackers this Diwali, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Monday.

He said the move is also aimed at celebrating 'community and pollution-free Diwali'.

Addressing a press conference, the chief minister, flanked by deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, said the event will be held at Connaught Place.

"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," he said.

On his part, Sisodia said it will be a 'community Diwali' where there will be no pollution.

Kejriwal had made the announcement about the laser show earlier in September, when he laid down the Parali Pollution Action Plan aimed at combating air pollution. He had urged people to avoid bursting crackers on Diwali, adding that the government will host a free-of-cost laser show during the festival.
