SC firecracker ban: How it will impact Delhi air, shopkeepers this Diwali
10 Octubre 2017, 12:54 | Bibiana Flor
Chetan Bhagat insisted that a firecrackers ban was not the solution
In 2015, Kaliswari Fireworks, a leading cracker manufacturer in Sivakasi, moved the Supreme Court saying that banning fireworks during Diwali is against Hindu belief and mythology.
The ban went into effect in November 2016 but was temporarily lifted in September on the grounds that a complete ban would be too extreme a step.
The Court in its Order today noted that the submissions of the petitioners regarding the harmful effects of using firecrackers on Diwali appear convincing.
It said that all the temporary licences that police had issued in pursuance to September 12 order stand suspended forthwith "so that there is no further sale of the crackers in Delhi and NCR". The air in Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida becomes impossible to breathe post Diwali every year. In 2016, PM 2.5 particles, which are harmful to human health, spiked to over 16 times their safe limit, during this period.
In another tweet, he said without crackers there is no Diwali for children.
"Ban nuclear weapons, not crackers", said one shopkeeper in Sadar Bazar.
With some of the highest levels of pollution in the world New Delhi sees an increase of people admitted to hospital suffering from asthma and respiratory problems after Diwali.
"The pollution levels in north India are multiple times higher than the national standards throughout the winter months, hence we also need to look at a stricter, comprehensive and time-bound action plan to address all sources of air pollution across India", a Greenpeace India spokeswoman said.
Fireworks sales were already curbed after Diwali previous year.
"Due to Supreme Court's order crackers are ban in Delhi NCR" (sic).
In the heart of one of the largest wholesale markets in the country, New Delhi's Sadar Bazaar, more than 1,000 people involved with the firecracker industry are looking at loss of seasonal business as well as revenue of more than Rs 700 crore.
The order was passed on a plea by Arjun Gopal and two others, the kids, who approached the court, citing poor air quality in the city.
The Congress MP from Kerala wrote, "Your examples of practices integral to those observances; banning them would be like banning lamps onDiwali". "A full ban? What's Diwali for children without crackers?" he wrote in his first reaction to the court ruling.
