In a game-changing decision, Supreme Court banned the sales of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR with effect from October 9 till November 1. The decision was taken in wake of a petition which requested the apex court to restore last year's ban.

The ban was restored keeping in mind that a number of firecrackers that are burst during festive season add to the already alarming level of air pollution in Delhi. Though, few people didn't agree with the SC decision and raised their voice against it through the micro-blogging website, Twitter.
