In order to protect pollution in the Capital City, the Delhi government has imposed a ban on the sale and storage of all types of firecrackers, ahead of the festival season in India. 

Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister (CM) of Delhi took to his Twitter and wrote (roughly translated into English), "In view of the dangerous condition of Delhi's pollution during Diwali for the last 3 years, a complete ban is being imposed on the storage, sale, and use of all types of firecrackers. So that people's lives can be saved."


 


Kejriwal also requested the people involved in trading to restrain themselves from storing firecrackers, amid the heavy loss they suffered last year.

"In view of the seriousness of pollution after the stocking of firecrackers by traders last year, a complete ban was imposed late in view of the seriousness of which traders suffered losses. It is an appeal to all the traders that this time in view of the complete ban, do not do any kind of storage," Kejriwal tweeted.
