New Delhi : Today is the last day of the Odd-Even rule in the capital Delhi. Given the dangerous level of pollution, the scheme is expected to be pushed forward. This was indicated by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. He had said that Odd-even can be extended if needed. Even today, pollution in the capital of Delhi is at a dangerous level. The Air Quality Index in the Dwarka area has been recorded beyond 700.
The pollution level in Delhi is increasing and the air index has reached a very critical condition. Considering the pollution, the Delhi government had decided to implement the Odd-Even scheme from November 4 to 15 and according to it, Friday is the last day of the scheme. However, in view of the increasing pollution, this scheme can be extended further. The Delhi government can make a decision today on whether the deadline of the Odd-Even scheme will be extended.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said during a press conference on air pollution on Wednesday that I am worried about the health of the people and the image of the country's capital Delhi is also concerned. If there is so much smoke in Delhi, what image will be made?
He said, 'We are seeing that pollution in Delhi increased due to stubble burning from October 10. Smoke had reduced in Delhi due to rain in Punjab, Haryana, but the pollution level increased in Delhi as soon as the rain stopped. Straw is still being burnt. The Supreme Court's strict order is not being accepted.
