Is there any other way to stop pollution other than lockdown? Kejriwal govt supports complete lockdown

New Delhi: The Arvind Kejriwal government of Delhi sees no other way than complete lockdown to control pollution in the national capital. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Monday told the apex court that it was ready to take steps like complete lockdown to control air pollution. But it should be implemented in the entire National Capital Region (NCR).

The Kejriwal government said in an affidavit, ‘GNCTD (NCT of Delhi Government) is ready to take steps like complete lockdown to control local emissions. However, this step will prove worthwhile only if it is implemented in the NCR regions of the neighboring states. Delhi’s small size, this lockdown will have a very limited impact on air quality.

The Delhi government said in the court, “The issue needs to be resolved at the level of the airshed (the part of the atmosphere that behaves according to the spread of emissions) belonging to the NCR regions. In view of this, if the government of India or the national capital The Air Quality Management Commission in the region and surrounding areas mandates it for the entire NCR region, we are ready to consider the move.”
