The ban is imposed after taking serious note of the nuisance the firecrackers create and the harmful effects of firecrackers, especially on heart patients, stated the NSCN-IM. “Besides, it is never a part of our culture. Therefore, anyone found selling or transporting such items would be strictly dealt with,” the statement added.
