Automobiles seem to be a ‘bigger polluter’ than firecrackers, observes SC
New Delhi:The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to give a comparative study on pollution caused by firecrackers and automobiles and observed that people are running after firecrackers and seeking ban on it when it seems that automobile is the bigger polluter."Why everyone is after firecrackers when automobiles are major pollutants? Why everyone is seeking a ban only on firecrackers?" asked the bench during a hearing on a bunch of petitions, demanding a ban on firecrackers because of their adverse impact on health.
