These people are involved in the process of manufacturing and selling of firecrackers and are associated with the fireworks industry in some way or the other. Also, the petition states, if a complete ban on the sale and use of firecrackers is imposed in West Bengal this season, the sellers and manufacturers will suffer irreparable damage, which may lead to a complete shutdown of the firecracker industry and millions of people.
