Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy has expressed his unhappiness over Supreme Court's decision to ban sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR during Diwali.

Adding to the growing social media clamour over the Supreme Court ban on sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR this Diwali, Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy has sparked a fresh controversy with a veiled attack on the court ruling.

"First Dahi Handi, today firecrackers, tomorrow the award wapsi brigade and those holding candlelight vigils may file a litigation against cremation rites of Hindus on the grounds of causing air pollution," the Tripura governor tweeted.

Speaking to India Today over phone, Tathagata Roy clarified that as a practising Hindu he was unhappy with the Supreme Court ruling as it deprived the community of an important aspect of the celebrations.
