Delhi Pollution: EPCA imposes ban of trucks as air quality improves

Delhi Pollution: EPCA imposes ban of trucks as air quality improves

"Stubble burning in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana... was very high on November 6 and upper-air winds became North Westerly (towards Delhi) with high speed and started pumping pollution in Delhi", it adds. Both politicians in a joint statement said they would take all possible steps to ensure that pollution levels in 2018 is kept under check. But what are we actually doing about it?

"Agar hamein yeh match jeetna hai pollution ke against, toh hum sab ko saath mein mil ke khelna hoga", this is the message of the cricketing genius for Delhiites. Kyunki hum sabki zimmedaari hain pollution ko kam karna. While the BJP leader, Dharmendra Pradhan, the Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas tweets, "Happy to share that Government has chose to prepone the introduction of BS-VI grade Fuel in NCT of Delhi w.e.f. 1st April 2018 in place of 1st April 2020 as a honest effort to curb the vehicular pollution in Delhi and adjoining areas". Specially jo log Delhi mein rehte hain, un sabki yeh responsibility hain.

"I would urge people to share their rides whenever they can".

"First of all we have to understand that our territories can be different but nobody has control over winds and when pollution has spread all over, all of us have to find a solution related to this", said, Kejriwal, after holding a two-hour long meeting with Khattar. "(Because every small action also makes a difference) If you agree, like this post, share it and show your support", Kohli concluded.

Yesterday, Delhi Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot had written to Lt Governor Anil Baijal urging him to "reconsider" the hike effected to tackle alarming pollution levels, holding the move was proving to be counterproductive. Virat Kohli has played 60 Test matches with 4658 runs and an average of 49.55.
