Hyderabad: T Raja Singh Goshamahal MLA on Friday went around promoting handmade diyas by the local porter community. In a video message, the MLA said the ‘kunwar’ (porter) community struggles hard to make diyas available to the people for Deepavali.
“We should not buy and use China-made light bulbs for decoration. Preference should always be for clay-made diyas,” said Raja Singh.
The MLA went ahead and said Goddess Lakshmi would not visit home if the China-made light bulbs are put in front of the house. “Boycott China and use Indian diyas,” Raja Singh urged.
