Kejriwal Announced Action Plan To Combat Air Pollution

Delhi air pollution is here along with the festive season. And so is the winter action plan to combat air pollution. The capital city of the country has been experiencing pollution for a long time now. With a spike in air pollution every passing day, it has become next to impossible to breathe clean air. The city was previously declared as a gas chamber by Delhi’s Chief Minister and AAP President, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal.

However, amidst the rise in pollution level and outcry of the people, to its mercy, the Delhi Government has come up with an action plan to combat air pollution. City air pollution is primarily due to the crop burning in the neighboring state – Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan which collides with the festive season during which people burst firecrackers.

Would an action plan to combat air pollution really help?

An action plan to combat air pollution was recently announced via a tweet by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. He said that the pollution level in Delhi has reduced by 25% in the last 4 years. The concentration level of particle matter 2.5 – which is one of the deadliest pollutants among many others can cause serious health issues. To name a few – lung cancer, kidney damages, brain tumor, etc.

Here are few snapshots of the tweets of Arvind Kejriwal sharing the glimpse of an action plan to combat air pollution:
