With the country’s capital becoming a gas chamber, a round of allegations and counter-allegations has also started.
Due to air pollution in Delhi NCR, the situation is gradually going out of control. AQI remains above 400 in most areas of Delhi NCR. The air quality index is reaching very dangerous levels. The AQI level in Wazirpur area of Delhi had reached close to 600. With the country’s capital becoming a gas chamber, a round of allegations and counter-allegations has also started. The Central and Delhi governments are targeting each other. But apart from this, let us take you towards Gaza, about 4 thousand kilometers away from Delhi, which is in the news these days due to the conflict with Israel.
Attacks by the Israeli Defense Force are continuing in Gaza. Bombs are raining from the sky, missiles are being fired. All the big buildings left behind are being razed to the ground. Overall, only clouds of smoke will be visible all around. But still if we look at the air quality index of Gaza, it is close to 36 today. That is, on one hand, in Delhi, the AQI level has reached 600-700 in many areas. Whereas in Gaza it is limited to only two digits.
As Delhi remained shrouded in a thick blanket of smog for the fifth consecutive day, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has engaged in an allegation with the BJP over the worsening levels of air pollution in the national capital. While Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva criticized Kejriwal for indulging in political tourism in poll-bound states during the crisis, Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai hit out at the BJP governments in Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and the Centre. Addressing a press conference, Rai said that Union Environment Minister Bhupendra Yadav should be active in solving the problem of air pollution. He stressed that it is not just the national capital, but people of northern India are breathing polluted air.
