High Court Asks Government To Ban Firecrackers Sale

The Telangana High Court directed the government to immediately ban the sale and use of firecrackers across the state during the upcoming Deepavali season.
Hyderabad | 12th November 2020
Citing the country and the state struggling with Covid-19, the Telangana High Court on Thursday directed the state government to immediately ban the sale and use of firecrackers by people and organizations across the state during the upcoming Deepavali season.

The court also directed the state to make an appeal to the people through the print and electronic media asking them to refrain from bursting firecrackers in order to prevent any further deterioration in the air quality.

It also instructed the government to immediately close shops which were selling fireworks, and to file cases against anyone who sold firecrackers.

The court passed these order while dealing with a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking a ban on the sale and use of firecrackers between November 10 and November 30.

The petition was filed by advocate Indra Prakash. In his petition he told the court that the state was still registering Covid-19 cases, and that the bursting of firecrackers would lead to lung infection and breathing problems.

The division bench of the court that made the ruling also directed the state to submit a report before it on the steps taken by it in implementing its directions, before November 19.

The court also noted that the Rajasthan government had already banned the sale of firecrackers.
