Mumbai, Dec 13 (UNI) Mumbai Mayor Shubha Raul today urged the citizens to wholeheartedly participate in the 'Mumbai Blackout' campaign on December 15.

Speaking to reporters here, Mrs Raul said ''The problem of global warming is increasing day by day and the idea to switch off power for an hour from 1930 hrs to 2030 hrs on December 15, will save as much as 550 MW of power.'' The citizens of Mumbai are expected to participate in the 'Blackout' campaign and switch off power supply to emphasise the threat of global warming.

The Mayor added that after the success of the 'Mumbai Blackout Campaign' in the city, she will make an appeal to the car owners in the metropolis to use public transport for a few days in a month in order to fight noise and air pollution in the city.
