Schools shut, construction work stopped in smoke house Delhi
NEW DELHI: As the capital continued to suffer one of its worst spells of air pollution in living memory and air quality further dipped to the season’s lowest on Sunday, the Delhi government finally announced a slew of emergency measures to deal with the public health crisis.
All schools have been shut for three days and construction and demolition activities across the city banned for five days, starting Monday.
The government has imposed a five-day ban on operation of diesel generator sets, except for ’emergency’ services such as hospitals, mobile towers etc.
The government was also looking at fanciful options like the possibility of creating artificial rain while preparing for another round of odd-even traffic restrictions.

I wish crazywal had taken necessary steps before things got worsened. but he was instead busy criticizing modi for everything wrong happening in this world. the first think that central government should do is dismiss delhi government and allow lg to run the state. Crazywal is a curse to delhi, he’ll neither work nor let others work.

stop burning man and give incentive to use hybrid cars and check convertors and stop cars older than 25 years.india has to wake up. it is the problem of the govt at center and greedy corrupt buliders and politicians in all walks of life and places and party forcing short cuts. Diesel is bad but who will cut the cord? No wonder US does not encourage it. a must to have EV and hybrid as oddeven does not work. it is the loose laws of pollution and failures

In this situation also people are bursting crackers just because it’s chat puja. I don’t understand people are blind or just padhe likhe illiterate.
Pollution is a news only in Delhi. Paid media not dare to report the issues in Haryana because BJP is ruling there.
spray water in upper atmosphere to remove atmospheric dust unburnt carbon and soot particles.
And whole night have been hearing crackers! What the f! Are we testing saturation level for all to drop dead?
Play Schools in areas like chattarpur are still open. Kids may suffer the most in this polluted air, but school authorities have no responsibility as they are not going to be checked by govt.
