Supreme Court lashes out at the Delhi Govt

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday lashed out at the Delhi government for making “lame excuses” for not taking emergency measures to tackle the deteriorating air quality in the national capital.

The top court also asked the Centre to suggest “drastic measures” to deal with the emergent air pollution situation in Delhi.

The Court directed the Centre to call for an emergency meeting tomorrow and discuss the areas which it indicated to discuss the implementation.

What the Supreme Court told the Centre:

*Hue and cry over farmers’ stubble burning is without any scientific and factual basis.

*Stubble burning is not a major issue, city-related issues are there. The cat is out of the bag, the farmers’ stubble burning contributes to only 4 per cent of the pollution as per the chart. So we are targeting something which is totally insignificant.

*We direct the government of India to a call for an emergency meeting tomorrow and discuss the areas which we indicated and what orders they can pass to effectively control air pollution.

  • The major culprits of pollution are construction activity, industry, tansport, power and vehicular traffic apart from stubble burning in some parts. Even though some decisions were taken by the Commission for Air Quality Management in the National Capital Region and Adjoining Areas Act has not indicated precisely what steps they are going to take to control factors that are causing air pollution.
