No ban on fire crackers: SC
Refusing to listen to the pleas of those who strive to contain the damage caused by the firecrackers in the environment and people, the top court of the country has declined to impose a blanket ban on fire crackers.
But, it has imposed some reasonable restrictions to the usage of firecrackers. It is expected to reduce the damage caused by the crackers to an extent.
Diwali is the festival of fire. Most of the firecrackers produced in the country are produced for the celebration of this festival. Firecrackers are not environment friendly. It emits a lot of pollutants potential enough to deplete the quality of air, and also causes noise pollution. For that reason, during the festival of Diwali, every year, in India, a lot of people suffer serious health complications, especially the heart patients and asthma patients. The proximity of the festival season with the onset of winter season makes things worst in the North India, especially the national capital Delhi.
Unfortunately, the latest verdict has spoiled the last hope of those who have expected an end to the sufferings they endure every festival season.
It is the victory of the populist interests over the few who are incapable to resist the collective strength of the, so called, public.
