Reviewing the preparations ahead of a two-week-long ‘Clean Air Campaign’, Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan said that the campaign should not be only symbolic but the complaints and feedback received should be monitored from the ground.
Ministry officials said 131 tonnes of dust were being emitted in Delhi every day. Controlling the emission of dust will bring down the air pollution drastically, they said.
The minister emphasised that there should be no laxity by officials in enforcing the rules.
“The campaign should not be just symbolic and complaints and feedback should be monitored from the ground. It is not just a technical requirement, it is the moral responsibility of all agencies, both at central and state levels,” he said.
