Diwali firecrackers

New Delhi: Due to worries over harmful air pollution levels, the Delhi government banned the storage, sale, and usage of firecrackers in the national capital during the Diwali period on Wednesday.Last year, the ruling AAP took the same step, when pollution levels were linked to the spread of COVID-19. As quality of air fell in the week after Diwali, the city saw a jump in cases, with a seven-day average of about 6,000 per day." 

In view of the dangerous condition of Delhi's pollution during Diwali in the last three years, like last year, a complete ban is being imposed on storage, sale and use of all types of firecrackers. (This is) so that people's lives can be saved,"Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi Chief Minister, took to Twitter.Mr. Kejriwal agreed that last year's restriction was enacted late, causing dealers to lose money.As per him,

The lateness of the prohibition led to some dealers continuing to stock and sell firecrackers, adding to Delhi's worst air quality levels in four years (on the day following Diwali).PM2.5 levels were nearly six times the permissible limit in the national capital, making air quality severe.' PM10 levels were roughly 10% above the safe limit, with such areas having much higher levels."In view of the seriousness of pollution after the stocking of firecrackers by traders..

Last year a complete ban was imposed late, which caused losses to traders. It is an appeal to all traders... in view of the complete ban, do not store or sell firecrackers," he sent out a tweet.Despite these issues, many people disobeyed the law - and the National Green Tribunal's guidelines - that prohibited the use of fireworks in the National Capital Region from November 9 to the end of the month.Other states, even those run by the BJP, have declined to fully impose the prohibition; Assam has stated that "Hindus have the freedom to celebrate," whilst Haryana has provided a two-hour window.
