Bollywood speaks on the rising poor quality air in Delhi

Many B-town celebs have taken to social media to raise their concern about the hazardous quality of air in Delhi. On Monday, the Air Quality Index revealed that the majority of the pollutants still stay in the category of ‘severe’. The AQI was recorded to be the highest since 2016.

Citing this scenario, the government had chalked out a plan to deploy Odd-Even from Nover 4-15. As per this method, odd-numbered registration plates will be running on odd dates and the even-numbered registration plates on even dates. The cars will be running from 8 am to 8 pm except on Sundays.

With this, many Bollywood actors like Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Rampal, Dia Mirza, Lisa Ray, Rishi Kapoor and Swara Bhaskar shared their views about the issue.

Implementation of the odd-even system is like a bandage one puts on a wound but its not a permanent fix. The problem faced by our national capital every year is getting severe for humans to live in. On one hand, the Kejriwal led Delhi Government is blaming the government of the neighbouring states, Punjab and Haryana, for all the pollution caused by the burning of stubble which results in the smoke entering the Delhi-NCR region due to the Himalayan winds. People of Delhi suffer the most in terms of health and wealth alike. On top of this, the Modi Government is pointing finger at the Delhi Government and accusing them of being biased towards the factories prevailing in or around Delhi area which according to them are the real cause of bad air quality. 

With all this blame game going on between the Centre and the State Governments, no one is really bothered about how to solve this problem once and for all. Odd-Even rules or not burning of stubble will create the perfect atmosphere for us to breathe in.
