New Delhi: There is no way to wake up and understand whether it is morning or afternoon. Before Diwali, the entire Delhi and its adjoining areas are covered in pollution (Delhi Air Pollution). The Supreme Court made a strong comment on that. The top court said that the capital’s air pollution cannot become a political battleground. Not only that, there was strong criticism that people’s health was being killed in the nation’s capital. (Supreme Court)
A petition seeking a ban on betting was filed before Diwali. The Supreme Court made such comments in its hearing on Tuesday. It said, “Crash burning in the neighboring states of Punjab and Haryana is largely responsible for this outbreak of pollution in Delhi’s air every winter. It needs to be addressed. Then we can think about vehicle emissions. At least something has to be done.”
Political tension is at its peak at the moment over the pollution outbreak in Delhi. On the one hand, the BJP is attacking the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, on the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party is questioning the role of the Centre. In that atmosphere, the court strongly reprimanded Delhi, neighboring states and the Center on this day. Pajna suggests stopping the moral mud-slinging and finding a way out of the situation for the time being.

On this day, the court ordered the Punjab government to immediately stop burning the roots of crops. The Aam Aadmi Party government in Punjab was told, “The burning of crops must be stopped. I don’t know how to do it. But it must be done. Action must be taken immediately.”
The court said to the central government, on the one hand, the quality of millet is not being neglected, and on the other hand, the underground water reserves are being destroyed through paddy cultivation. It has directed the Center to review the suspension of such paddy cultivation during this season of the year. The court also commented that the design of the stored water in Punjab has changed.
Every year since the beginning of winter, the air pollution in Delhi has become alarming. This time it was no different. Air quality in Delhi further deteriorated on Tuesday morning. After this, the air quality was rated as ‘very serious’. The air quality index there this morning was 394. The index was at 421 on Monday afternoon. Airborne dust levels up to 15 micrograms per cubic meter are considered respirable by the World Health Organization. Delhi has been overtaken long ago.
