पिछले साल व्यापारियों द्वारा पटाखों के भंडारण के पश्चात प्रदूषण की गंभीरता को देखत हुए देर से पूर्ण प्रतिबंध लगाया गया जिससे व्यापारियों का नुकसान हुआ था। सभी व्यापारियों से अपील है कि इस बार पूर्ण प्रतिबंध को देखते हुए किसी भी तरह का भंडारण न करें।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) September 15, 2021
On fifteenth September, Kejriwal took to Twitter to announce a whole ban on procurement, storage and sale of firecrackers for Diwali maintaining in thoughts ‘air pollution’. This even though scientific research have proven that firecrackers contribute little to air pollution and greater wrongdoer is the stubble burning in neighbouring state of Punjab which provides to Delhi air pollution woes.
However, whereas Delhi authorities by itself had determined to ban firecrackers for Diwali. But for Chhath Puja, they wrote to Central authorities and LG. Here is how Kejriwal has performed a grimy political sport over Hindu festivals:
Chhath Puja in Delhi
Chhath Puja is well known principally in Bihar and Purvanchal space of Eastern Uttar Pradesh. Uttar Pradesh goes to polls early subsequent 12 months. Many folks from UP and Bihar keep in Delhi, which is why the celebration of Chhath Puja has gained prominence in Delhi too. However, in a poll-bound state, the place Aam Aadmi Party desires to contest elections, Chhath Puja is getting used as a political device.
It is obvious that if Delhi authorities by itself can determine for Diwali it might additionally determine for Chhath Puja. But it didn’t. Because, vote financial institution politics. If Central authorities points pointers and points restrictions as a part of COVID protocol, Kejriwal would blame Centre for not paying heed to sentiments of individuals from Purvanchal, a part of UP. But if LG does enable celebration of Chhath Puja, Kejriwal would swoop in and take credit score for a similar.
A real politician.
