“We already have 64 lakh private vehicles on the road and would like to avoid a smog situation, as in Delhi, in Bengaluru. While we are not banning private vehicles on that day, we will try to create an awareness among Bengalureans to utilise public transport or hire yellow board vehicles to avoid pollution in the city,” Transport minister HM Revanna told ToI.
