外文标题：After US, European Union diplomats in Delhi to get air purifiers
NEW DELHI: The European Union has directed its diplomats in Delhi to install air purifiers at home and office to reduce exposure to high air pollution levels.
Ambassador and Head of Delegation of the European Union to India Joao Cravinho said EU would not monitor air pollution levels in Delhi as the US embassy in Chanakyapuri is already doing so but hoped India would implement tougher policies to fight pollution.
"We don't need to monitor the pollution level; the US is doing that ... But we need to respond for the safety of our staff...living in the city," Cravinho told a news agency on Wednesday.
Just before President Obama arrived in Delhi last month, the US embassy reportedly "purchased over 1,800 high-performance portable indoor air purifiers to protect employees", according to a Chicago-based air purifier company.
What about the common man who can't afford water purifiers?
What About PEOPLE OF DELHI .IS THIS ALSO VVIP PRIVILEGE .

after reading article, it looks like Delhi is not the place for living. better these consulate can shift to near by cities and operate from there.
