The court passed this order, reimposing its earlier order of 11 November 2016, suspending the sale of firecrackers so as to test the suspension order and ascertain its positive effect on the air quality of the NCR region, particularly during the Diwali period.

"We are pained to hear that some people are trying to give a communal colour to our order".

The traders had moved the apex court on October 11 after its October 9 order that imposed a blanket ban on sale of firecrackers ahead of Diwali to curb pollution.

The city administration has allowed those residents who have brought Diwali firecrackers in advance to burn them between 6 pm to 10 pm on October 19.

"We are not going to relax the order as far as sale of firecrackers is concerned", the bench said and directed the Delhi Police to implement the order.

Criticising Shashi Tharoor's statement supporting the ban on firecracker sale in Delhi-NCR, Ramdev said that an intelligent person like him must not speak like this.

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to modify the ban order on crackers in Delhi-NCR and asked to not to politicise the court's verdict. Immediate steps were taken to seal shops trading in crackers in conformity with the court's directive to suspend licenses issued following the September order. The bench, however, indicated that it had not put any ban on bursting of crackers. People burst firecrackers to celebrate the festival.

A bench headed by Justice AK Sikri said the apex court's September 12 order temporarily lifting the stay and permitting sale of firecrackers would be effective from November 1.
