A 9-yr-old climate and environment activist, Licypriya Kangujam staged a protest in Delhi's Vijay Chowk over air pollution in the national capital. She held a hand-written poster demanding 'permanent solution' for air pollution. She said, "I want our leaders to take immediate action to fight air pollution. They are busy blaming each other instead of finding a solution. No action is being taken."
Delhi's air quality is taking a hit, as it reached 'very poor' levels on October 15. Thick blanket of smog enveloped Delhi-NCR. Rampant stubble burning in Haryana, Punjab and local pollutants are main causes of deteriorating air quality, according to experts. "We are facing problem in breathing, we can't even see sunlight,' said a cyclist at Rajpath.
