Their plea was rejected “as it was found that it was not a fireworks show but a competitive display”, the order stated. A copy given to district police officials stated they should watch whether the temple authorities were violating the law and submit a report in case of any violation. The order was issued on April 8 on a complaint of 80-year old Pankajakshiamma, who stays very close to the temple. In her complaint, she had stated that every year, during the ‘competitive fireworks’, at the temple, her house used to suffer damage and wanted suitable steps to control it.
