Delhi is a gas chamber, but other cities are worse

Filed on November 6, 2019 | Last updated on November 6, 2019 at 09.00 pm

Since the air pollution levels in north India have increased the focus of the entire media industry has been on the health of citizens in Delhi. The Supreme Court of India, too, has issued notices to the Delhi government. I wonder if the health of Delhiites is more important than others. I am saying that because eight of the top 10 most polluted cities are in the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh. Delhi, in fact, does not even figure in top ten cities. Why is anybody not talking about or taking any steps to curb pollution in those cities?
