With assembly elections scheduled early next year, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday launched an online public consultation exercise seeking ideas from citizens to tackle pollution during winters.

Launching a campaign ‘#FightingPollutionTogether’ on technology platform change.org, Kejriwal informed netizens that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the national capital has started working on its winter action plan.

“I would like to hear from people how the government and the citizens can collaborate in this mission to keep Delhi’s air clean. The 25% reduction in pollution we have achieved in Delhi has to be built upon to reduce it further,” read a statement from the government which quoted Kejriwal.

Last month, the chief minister had launched a seven-point action plan for Diwali and the winter, including re-introduction of the odd-even scheme from November 4-15 to cut down vehicular pollution and distributing high-quality air masks.

In a message to the users of change.org, Kejriwal said, “If you have an idea to beat pollution, then start a petition to me right away. I believe great things are in our future when citizens and the government build a roadmap together.”
