air pollution

The AAP criticised the former cricket star for not attending the meeting, saying he was "busy enjoying" in Indore, at a time when Delhi was reeling under severe air pollution levels.

Locals especially the middle-aged people complained of breathless and fatigue and have urged the government to take requisite measures to combat the menace.

The meeting was supposed to discuss measures to deal with the on-going health emergency in Delhi, on 15th November.

Delhi is again in the grip of toxic air with air quality index falling to severe level. Residents are facing huge difficulty in breathing, walking and going out in public.

The court also directed the Centre to prepare a road map for installation of air-purifying towers to deal with the pollution crisis in the national capital.

This was the third edition of the odd-even restrictions, a flagship scheme of the AAP government, on private vehicles in Delhi.

There was haze as air quality around India Gate and Major Dhyan Chand Stadium remained in the 'Very Poor' category.

In a bid to tackle the national capital's air pollution, the Delhi government has also re-introduced the Odd-Even scheme. Today is the third day of the programme and this scheme will run till November 15.

The apex court also summoned chief secretaries of Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh to appear before it on stubble burning and pollution issue.

Speaking on the situation in the national capital, the court stated the situation was being repeated every year and it is not tolerable.
