For several days people from Lahore and some other parts of Punjab were in miserable condition due to smog. However, the first winter rainfall on Tuesday has been a fortunate to change the miserable condition into a joyful moment. 

I wish to congratulate the citizens of Lahore. I further want to appeal that they should avoid engaging in activities which cause smog. 

MUHAMMAD BAKHTIYAR,
