Though the so-called humanitarian NGO might have filed appeal against the pollution, but the ‘end’ result would be disastrous for lakhs of families. According to a repost, as the uncertainty over the fireworks manufacturing industry following the Supreme Court's order to produce only 'green crackers' looms large, the eight lakh workers dependent on the sector and its allied industries in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu, the hub for fireworks-manufacturing industries, stare at a bleak future. The workers are likely to lose their jobs if one goes by the fireworks manufacturers claims of non-availability of any approved chemical composition of the green crackers to replace the existing conventional firecrackers to take up production for next year's Diwali. Normally, after a week or ten days after Diwali, the fireworks industry commences production for next year's festival. But this year, K Mariappan, general secretary of Tamil Nadu Fireworks and Amorces Manufacturers Association (TANFAMA), said that with no approved chemical composition for green crackers, the industries would not be in a position to commence the firecrackers production considering the Supreme Court order dated October 28.
