Ban on firecrackers and fireworks enforced in Tatkon

TATKON Township General Administration Department has stepped up enforcing a ban on firecrackers and fireworks as the end of Buddhist Lent draws near.
The department issued warnings against selling fireworks through loud speakers in various parts of the township.
Authorities said that randomly setting off fireworks will cause alarm to residents, especially older people and children and that they are sometimes used deliberately to destroy the peace and tranquility of the area.
Road-side shops, markets and vendors have been banned from selling any such items and authorities said that action will be taken against anyone caught doing so. Local officials undertook a surprise inspection of stores in the township on 9 October. As Buddhist Lent ends in late October, many people are in a festive mood, however authorities are enforcing security measures in Nay Pyi Taw Council Area.
