Hundreds of Delhites gathered yesterday at the India Gate to protest against the rising pollution level in Delhi and demanded clean air from the government. This protest was called the “citizens’ protest” against the severe air pollution in the national capital.

The rising pollution level is said to be because of the stubble burning which is taking place in Haryana and Punjab. At the same time, the air quality of Delhi has also declined because of the burning of crackers during the festivities.

Environmentalist Vimlendu Jha who led the protest said, “Every year, Delhi becomes a gas chamber in November and by December, we all stop talking about it. We don’t want the government to inform us that Delhi is very polluted, we want them to tell us how can Delhi be pollution free. I feel sad when I say this, but it is a collective failure as it is the responsibility of the state and central government to resolve the issue.”

Till date, the air quality index of the national capital is said to be in a hazardous condition and because of the same, public health emergency was imposed last week.
