“This apart, we are also trying to promote the indigenous cultures of different communities through the cultural programmes which will be part of the event. Budding talents of the city will be given chance to perform in the programmes,” he added.
DT Waghmare, municipal commissioner of NMMC said, “All around development of the children as well as other residents is one of priorities. So we are just doing our part by organising such programmes in the city.”
