New Delhi, Oct 28 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to order blanket ban on firecrackers on Diwali, after hearing a PIL filed by three children through their parents seeking a ban on firecrackers ahead of Diwali. The Supreme Court also directed the media to propagate the ill effects the bursting of crackers has and the sound and air pollution it causes. The apex court bench of Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra asked the Centre and other authorities to start publicity campaign both in print and electronic media on the harmful impact of firecrackers during the festival season from October 31 to November 12. The court reiterated its earlier order prohibiting the bursting of firecrackers during the night hours from 10.00 p.m. to 6 a.m.
