NEW DELHI: When air pollution hits a certain danger mark in Beijing, the government issues a red alert that automatically puts curbs on factories, construction work and vehicles. If Delhi had a similar system, then almost right through November, the stipulation on cars with odd- and even-numbered license plate using the roads on alternate days would have been in force. Schools and factories would also have remained shut for the entire month.
According to an analysis by Greenpeace India and East Asia, on 29 out of November's 30 days, the quality of air in Delhi was so poor that a smog alert should actually have been declared, as in Beijing, and emergency measures imposed to bring the severity down. Greenpeace extrapolated data from the Central Pollution Control Board's air quality index (AQI) to identify the days in November that breached the benchmark for a pollution alert under the Chinese system.
People should demand clean air, clean water, clean rivers. It is a prerequisite to development.
Hindu rule of India of last 68 Years have been total failure.
Filthy Indians are dying of pollution and that will solve population crisis
AAP had to stop giving Auto license . Auto is polluting Delhi much more and why don't you introduce more number of Buses across 27x7
But We Delhites are Happy with this and are neither willing nor ready to do anything to improve the situation
That is a TYPICAL Indian. Things go really bad "but what to do?"

I was expecting that Modi will revert to working on sewers. That's his forte which comes in handy as he has to deal with Stinky Hindoos.
China prospered as they enforce law
God forsaken country...
Time to change Indian capital from Delhi to some other city, maybe Chandigarh!!!
Instead of the " would have " and "could have" lines in the first para , let's face it. The air pollution in Delhi is getting from bad to worse each day soon people may be dropping dead on the streets and in Connaught Square and other popular hot spots in the capital
