Chandigarh: Administration’s cracker ban go up in flames during dussehra effigy burning

Despite the imposition of a cracker ban, several effigies of Ravana were burnt and firecrackers were burst on the occasion of Dussehra in Chandigarh. Not giving two hoots to the administration’s ban on the sale and use of crackers, many Ramleela committees in the city burnt the effigies during the celebrations of Dussehra in the city.

According to a report published in the Hindustan Times, the use of firecrackers was reported from areas such as Sector 34, 28 and Maloya during various events. Residents were also involved in bursting the firecrackers in the streets throughout the city, the reports stated.

On October 12, the UT administration imposed a complete ban on the sale and use of crackers in the city until further orders. The decision was taken due to the orders of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) and a possible third wave of the pandemic.

Action to be initiated soon

According to reports, crackers were burnt in Sector 34, which organised one of the biggest events in the city, but the orders of the administration went for a toss. The sub-divisional magistrate (South) Rupesh Kumar reached the place and also warned the organisers against bursting the crackers. Crackers were also burnt in Sector 28, Maninajra and Maloya.

Kumar was quoted by the Indian Express (IE) as saying that he had visited the spot and warned the organisers. He said that penal action will be initiated against the violators under the Disaster Management Act. The SDM has also asked the station house officer to submit a report on the matter.

According to the police, a case will be registered against the organisers of Sectors 28, 34, 26, Subhash Nagar and Maloya.

Meanwhile, a shopkeeper was booked and Garg General Store was sealed for reportedly selling crackers and violating the norms of the State Disaster Management Authority.

Covid protocols flouted in Sector 34

Covid norms went for a toss in Sector 34 as more than 1,000 people reportedly gathered and did not follow the social distancing rules. Massive chaos was witnessed in the area and it was an uphill task for the police to manage the crowd and keep a check on the people.

Even the traffic was also affected. People were standing in close proximity and did not wear masks. Dussehra was celebrated in Chandigarh at around 10 to 15 places in the city.

On the other hand, the Sanatan Dharma Dussehra Committee, Sector 46, followed the orders of the administration and burnt the effigy without crackers. The committee also took out a Shobha Yatra, showing a tableau related to the life of Lord Rama and celebrated Dussehra in a very simple manner.
