'Deliberately liting crackers spoil air quality': Gopal Rai

New Delhi: The situation in Delhi is very bad at present. Poison is in the air here. Last Diwali night, the atmosphere was the worst and in the morning it was such that people could not see anything outside the house. Now, amidst all this, Delhi Environment Minister Gopal Rai has made a statement. He blamed the burning of firecrackers and stubble for deteriorating air quality in the city. In a recent statement, he said, "About 3500 incidents of stubble burning around Delhi have affected the national capital today.''

At the same time, he alleged, "BJP is behind the burning of firecrackers by some people in Delhi for a special purpose.'' Let me tell you all that after a lot of firecrackers were lit on Diwali in the Delhi-National Capital Region, a thick layer of dense fog prevailed last Friday morning and residents in many parts had to face sore throats and eye-watering problems. Officials informed that the situation could worsen due to smoke emanating from stubble burning on Friday.

On the other hand, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) says, the average concentration of 24 hours of fine lung damage particles, PM2.5, increased to 410 micrograms per cubic metre at 9 am on Friday, about seven times the safe rate of 60 micrograms per cubic metre. The average concentration was 243 micrograms per cubic metre at 6 pm last Thursday. At the same time, the level of PM10 crossed the figure of 500 micrograms per cubic meter at around 5 am on Friday and it was 511 micrograms per cubic meter at 9 in the morning.
