Delhi Air Pollution: Before Diwali, the weather has given a big gift to the people of Delhi-NCR. The air quality of the capital has improved after heavy rains. However, after this rain the political dust is not going away. There is a competition between BJP and Aam Aadmi Party to take credit on pollution. On one hand, BJP is saying that this rain is the Prasad of Chhath Maiya. At the same time, it was said from AAP’s side that God is always with Arvind Kejriwal.
Manoj Tiwari said – Rain is Chhath Maiya’s Prasad
Bharatiya Janata Party MP Manoj Tiwari posted on X and wrote that AAP can do as much atrocities as it wants, Aam Aadmi Party came to power in Delhi by lying. No matter how much havoc you create, now God is worried about the national capital Delhi. The rain that has fallen today is the Prasad of Chhath Maiya. He further said that this gesture should be understood and Chhath Mahotsav, the festival of cleanliness and nature, should be allowed to be held on the banks of Yamuna also.
Somnath Bharti said- God is always with Kejriwal
On the politics of this rain, Aam Aadmi Party leader Somnath Bharti said that it is raining in the national capital Delhi. This is not artificial rain. God has sent the rain. God is always with Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party.
Odd-even decision taken back
Environment Minister Gopal Rai said that odd-even has been stopped in Delhi for the time being. Improvement in air pollution levels is being seen in the city. He said that due to the rain last night, the AQI which was more than 450 has now reached around 300. In view of this, the decision to implement the odd-even rule has been postponed. He said that the situation will be re-analyzed after Diwali.
Supreme Court on Delhi air pollution
The Supreme Court today asked the Center and the Punjab government to show results on the steps taken to curb pollution and fixed the hearing on November 21. Hearing the case related to hazardous air pollution in Delhi-NCR, a bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan said that there were many reports and committees on the issue of pollution, but nothing was happening at the ground level.
The court said that we want the incidents of stubble burning in the fields to stop, so that the air quality improves. Further said that it is your job how it happens. The decline should continue during the Diwali holidays. We have suggested a way, do as you like. But stubble burning should be stopped. The court said that some emergency measures are needed to reduce the incidents of stubble burning.
