We don't know what green crackers are. When we asked them (SHOs), they said they'll give us a list of crackers. But the next day they said it'll take 2 more days.

The traders were seen agitating with the adulterated vegetables and calling for a reversal of the SC ban.
The SC has allowed the bursting of 'green' firecrackers in the capital for only two hours on Diwali, from 8 pm to 10 pm. Not many cracker sellers have been able to open shop in the capital after the ban. However, sale of crackers has been continuing unabated in the outskirts of Delhi, an India Today report found.
