Ban on Diwali firecrackers in Delhi; Kejriwal government’s decision

Like last year, Diwali firecrackers have been banned in Delhi this year as well. Considering the air pollution caused by Diwali last year, the Kejriwal government has already decided to ban firecrackers this year. Therefore, the storage, sale and use of all types of firecrackers has been banned in Delhi this year. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has given the information by tweeting.

In a tweet, Kejriwal said, “In view of the dangerous state of pollution in Delhi during Diwali for the last three years, the storage, sale and use of all types of firecrackers has been banned this year as well as last year.” So that people’s lives can be saved. Also last year, after traders stockpiled firecrackers, a complete ban was imposed late due to the seriousness of the pollution, which caused losses to traders. Therefore, all traders are being urged not to stockpile firecrackers this year. ”

In Punjab and Haryana, farmers burn a large amount of farm produce, so the pollution level in Delhi peaks in these two months.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had held a press conference a few days back on grass burning and pollution. Instead of burning grass, they have emphasized the use of bio decomposers. The Chief Minister said that now the month of October-November is coming. Therefore, from October 10, the air in Delhi will start getting bad again. The main reason for this is the smoke from burning grass in neighboring states. So far, all the state governments have been blaming each other for air pollution in Delhi. Meanwhile, the Delhi government has come up with a solution. The Pusa Institute has developed a bio-decomposer solution. After spraying this solution, the stalks left after the wheat harvest rot, so it helps to re-prepare the field for sowing and there is no need to burn the waste. Last year, the Delhi government had sprayed 1935 acres of land in 39 villages in the state.
