On November 21, BJP MP Vijay Goel took a shot at the AAP government for the poor quality of air and water in the city.
Velachery, Ramapuram, Manali, Kodungaiyur, Anna Nagar, Chennai Airport clocked pollution levels as high as 341, while Delhi stood at 254.
An action plan to tackle air pollution in the National Capital Region was enforced on October 15 as the region’s overall air quality slipped to “very poor” levels.
On Air Quality Index, particulate matter 10 level at 286 and PM 2.5 level at 373, in 'Poor' and 'Very Poor' categories respectively was recorded at Lodhi Road today.
Air quality in Delhi remained in the poor category as stubble burning in the neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana continues to take a toll on the city’s atmosphere.
