Manufacturers in Delhi criticised the move, claiming there was no such thing as 'green' crackers. Now, a group of persons have found a come up with a unique way to protest the ban.

President of the Association HS Chhabra told news agency ANI, "We don't even know what green crackers are. There is no green cracker in the market."
