Will ‘odd-even’ return? Delhi Minister answers as air quality remains ‘poor’

The air quality in Delhi continues to dip with every passing day.

From vehicular pollution, to stubble burning in neighbouring states and dust from construction sites, several factors contribute to Delhi’s air quality which is now in the ‘poor’ category.

Delhi government has taken several steps to ensure that the air quality does not plummet further.

Delhi environment and development minister Gopal Rai was asked whether the state government is considering a return of the ‘odd & even’ scheme as a means to control vehicular pollution.

Rai said that ‘odd & even’ is an emergency measure and a decision on that will be taken depending on the situation later.

The Aam Aadmi Party government in the national capital has already launched a ‘War Against Pollution’ campaign and a tree transplantation policy has also been passed in a recent cabinet meeting.

Chief Minister is all set to launch the spraying of anti-stubble burning solution from Ghazipur village on October 13.

Watch the full video on the all the latest details on Delhi pollution.
