‘Stubble burning has stopped, Delhi’s pollution level still serious’: Javadekar
Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar questioned Delhi govt over the rising air pollution level. Javadekar said that stubble burning has stopped yet Delhi's pollution situation remains serious. He urged Delhi govt to take swift action on the complaints forwarded to it by CPCB. “The situation of air pollution in Delhi is still serious. Stubble burning has stopped but Delhi's air quality is in 'very poor' category. CPCB's 50 teams inspect Delhi and NCR every day. They submit complaints, observations from those visits to agencies concerned. Yet, some work is done while some work is left undone. Hence, CPCB has issued a notice to the Delhi govt. CPCB has asked Delhi govt to take necessary, swift action on the complaints. Delhi govt and all agencies concerned should swing into action,” Javadekar said. In its notice, CPCB asked Delhi govt to take strict action against industrial activities.
