Gorakhpur, Oct.30 (ANI): The demand for Chinese lights has risen in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur city ahead of Diwali.
On Diwali, people decorate their homes with lights, flowers and earthen lamps. But nowadays people prefer to use Chinese-made lights because they not only cost less but their electricity consumption is also less.
"People have started using Chinese lights because of which the sales of these lights have increased, and the quality of Chinese products has also increased. They are priced very cheaply because of which even the poor can afford to buy these lights, and secondly they consume very little electricity," said Rajeev Rastogi, a wholesale dealer.
"They hardly consume one or two watts of power. We can use these lights for decoration without additional electricity cost. We are able to celebrate better Diwali due to the Chinese products," he added.
Ausaf Ahmed, another wholesale dealer, said that the demand for these lights has increased over the years because they have become much more durable, and are sold at competitive prices.
"People prefer buying Chinese lights for the auspicious festival of Diwali. We have many different forms of Chinese lights. We have nets, rice lights, flower lights, and this time people are demanding Chinese lights because they cost less but are much more durable. People prefer decorating their homes with Chinese lights," said Ahmed. By Pawan Shah (ANI)
