Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Roy appreciated the campus of CGC Jhanjeri, for its greenery and upkeep. He told the audience that due to a very large number of cars in the city, the quality of air in Chandigarh was worse than that of Mumbai, but the residents do not feel it because of large number of trees and parks in Chandigarh which absorb the undesirable elements of air. He advised the students to use cycles in place of bikes and cars at least once or twice a week.
