1. Do u know real reason for cracker ban by SC?
Pollution? NO!
Says who?
So, says Supreme Court itself! See Extract from Sept 12 Judgment
2. Not only this, the SC only on Sep 12, 2017 said that data at its perusal does not warrant a full ban!
Then Why was it banned on Oct 9th?
3. Two reasons for ban. Pls dont laugh once u get to know😂
Reason 1 - To "test and find out" if it helps fight Pollution!
Read Oct 9 Judgmnt
4. Reason 2 for ban - There is already a "Virtual Consensus" in the country against crackers!!
Read extract
5. So, the Hon'ble SC by banning Crackers was only giving effect to what the 'consensus' against crackers already prevailing in the country!
6. From Sept 12 to Oct 9th - in less than 29 days, What prompted SC to change its own judgment?
New data? No!
New Research? No!
Then what?
7. Hold ur breath - what prompted the change was "emphatic & passionate plea" by the Counsel for the petitioners.
Read judgment extract
8. It was probably this very "emphatic & passionate" plea that led the court to also conclude that Diwali Fireworks were Choking the City!
9. Coz as already shown in Tweet 1 of the thread the study by IIT Kanpur did not point out Diwali as reason for Delhi's air pollution.
10. Great data has already been provided by @SirBullyMammoth & @pranasutra Giving some more data from IIT Kanpur Report on main causes..
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 11. Given in tables is % rank wise contribution to Delhi's Air Pollution on 5 parameters - as per data of IIT report on which court relied.
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 12. So, not only did IIT K not mention fireworks as a reason for Polln, it did not even suggest ban as a solution! See Action Plan of IIT K
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 13. So in essence, The SC
- Says that there is no evidence to conclude Diwali is the cause for pollution on Sept 9,2017
And then on Oct 9'17
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 14.
- Doesn't deny Sept 9 Judgment that Diwali is not the reason for Polln
- But Paradoxically goes on to say Diwali is choking Delhi!!
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 15. And bans crackers citing a 'consensus' which it finds in the Country against crackers!
All this can be concluded from the judgment!!
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 16. Following Questions deserve to be asked and answered:
A) How did the Hon’ble Court get to know of this ‘virtual consensus?’
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 17.
B) •How did the ‘consensus’ evolve in favour of the ban from of widespread consensus against the ban that has prevailed in the country-
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 18. "...prevailed in the country ever since the tyrant Aurangazeb first banned crackers in India?
C) •And how suddenly did this consensus
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 19. "..break down in the country, as can be seen from widespread outrage against the order, immediately after the passing of this judgment?
@SirBullyMammoth @pranasutra 20. I hope that there is some petition that can be filed to seek answers / clarifications from the Hon’ble Court!
