Yuvraj Singh Trolled while appealing for a cracker-free Diwali!

While many applauded Yuvi for taking a stand on the matters, others reminded him of the fireworks at his wedding reception.

The Supreme Court last week ruled that there will be no sale of firecrackers during Diwali. As the apex court  restored a November 2016 order banning the sale and stocking of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR. Ahead of the festivities it is a major victory in battle against pollution by environmental bodies. Burning firecrackers during Diwali is a major contributor in the city’s toxic air, as per these green bodies. The crackers emit mono oxides and other dense gases that take a long time to breakdown. Earlier in the northern region no laws were governing the limit of bursting crackers which has slowly led to this. Many celebrities have come to aid this decision and Yuvraj Singh is among the top.

Last year  was a witness of the smog from the crackers. The morning after 2016 Diwali  the pollution levels were insanely high. The toxic air prevailed for most parts of the season. While firecrackers may play a big role in pushing pollution levels up, there are also several other factors like vehicular emission, crop burning in Punjab and Haryana and prevailing weather conditions.

The directive, aimed to curbing dangerous pollution levels, found plenty of support from some of India’s biggest celebrities. Among the public personalities backing the top court’s order was Yuvraj Singh, who put out a video to request his fans and followers to celebrate a pollution-free Diwali.

While many applauded Yuvi for taking a stand on the matters, others reminded him of the fireworks at his wedding reception.

The comparison seems legit because clearly Yuvraj doesn’t practice what he is trying to preach!

 

A bench headed by Justice A.K. Sikri, while restoring the order, said: “We should see at least in one Diwali the impact of a cracker-free festivity.” However, the court said that the September 12, 2017 order lifting the ban on the sale and stocking of firecrackers in Delhi NCR will be back into effect from November 1.
