Ahmedabad (Gujarat) [India] | January 6, 2018 12:01:13 AM IST
Shopkeepers in Ahmedabad on Saturday expressed distress over nationwide ban on the procurement, sale and use of glass powder-coated 'manjha', stating that if a ban had to be implemented, it should have been done a year ago and not days before the peak time of their business.

"Business will suffer a blow as a result of NGT's Public interest litigation (PIL) in Supreme Court to ban glass-coated kite-strings. If a ban had to be implemented, it should have been done a year ago and not days before the peak time of their business," a shopkeeper told ANI.

On that note, the Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a plea seeking nationwide ban on the procurement, sale and use of glass powder-coated 'manjha'.

The top court had earlier asked petitioners, who in a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) sought ban on 'manja' as it resulted in more than 50 deaths in the last two years, to approach the NGT with their plea. (ANI)
