The traders told the apex court that their licences were revived in pursuance of the apex court's order passed on 12 September and they procured firecrackers for sale during Diwali.

Ramdev also launched an attack on senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor for supporting court's ban on firecrackers and said, "an intelligent man like Tharoor must not talk like this".

A bench headed by Justice AK Sikri said that the November 11, 2016, order suspending the licences "should be given one chance to test itself" to see if there would be a positive effect of this, particularly during Diwali. The Supreme Court bench proceeded by the Justice AK Sikri, while re-establishing the command said, "We must see at least in one Deepavali the effect of a cracker-free celebration". This year, Diwali falls on October 19.
