It's going to be a Diwali minus firecrackers this year for Delhi and its nearby areas. The Supreme Court today banned the sale of crackers till the 31st of October saying it wants to assess the impact on the air quality. Those who had already bought firecrackers can still light them. In November last year, the court had stopped the sale of fireworks for Delhi following a petition flagging the alarming rise in pollution levels after Diwali. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: can a ban on crackers alone clean our air? And why is clean air not a political priority?
