Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi: “Given the worsening pollution conditions in Delhi during Diwali over the past 3 years, like last year, a complete ban is imposed on the storage, sale, and use of all types of firecrackers so that people’s lives can be saved. “
Kejriwal also called on traders to avoid stockpiling firecrackers as they suffered heavy losses last year.
The Delhi CM further said: “Last year the ban was imposed after traders brought in their stocks of firecrackers, which caused them heavy losses. This is a call to all traders that this time, given the complete ban, do not make any kind of storage space. “
This year, Diwali will be celebrated on November 4th.
