Ramdev also launched an attack on senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor for supporting court's ban on firecrackers and said, "an intelligent man like Tharoor must not talk like this".

The court directed the Delhi Police to implement its order banning the sale of firecrackers in the Delhi-NCR. This year, Diwali falls on October 19.

The traders told the apex court that their licences were revived in pursuance of the apex court's order passed on 12 September and they procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali.

Traders and sellers of firecrackers have opposed the order of the apex court as it hurts their business badly during Diwali celebrations.

The Supreme Court will hear a plea on Friday by the group of traders seeking modification of its October 9 order by which the sale of firecrackers was banned in the Delhi-national capital region (NCR) till November 1.

It had said that the 11 November a year ago order, suspending all licences which "permit sale of fireworks, wholesale and retail within the territory of NCR", was passed by the court keeping in view the situation that had arisen after last Diwali.

Refusing to modify its earlier order, the apex court said, "We will ascertain after Diwali if there has been a difference in pollution levels".

Disagreeing with the SC's ban on crackers sale, renowned author Chetan Bhagat had asked on Monday why such bans are only against Hindu festivals.

The ban on sale and stocking of firecrackers will be in effect until November 1, 2017.

The apex court bench observed that due to the adverse effects of burning of firecrackers, "the air quality deteriorates abysmally and alarmingly and the city chokes thereby". "Celebrate this Diwali with Diyas & love".
