"Boycott vehicles that cause contamination," Dasari said.

He facilitate said the move to boycott would not help in decreasing contamination in the capital.

"After every one of this what happened. There is natural cess, for vehicles that are bigger than 2,000 cc, of 1 for each penny. Individuals who purchase such vehicles… is it accurate to say that they are going to quit purchasing these because of this one for each penny cess? Is that going to affect Delhi contamination?" Dasari noted.

He said the car business needs to chip away at its revamping it's picture.

"I consider it to be a test, this is the place the automobile business and parts industry will need to cooperate to remake our picture to give right sort of input," Dasari said.
