Gopal Rai said, "I appeal to the people of Delhi to use public transport including metro and buses to control pollution due to vehicles. The decision on the further closure of schools in Delhi will be taken on the basis of air quality on 6th November."
Delhi Minister and AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj on Friday said that the severity conditions that are in Noida, Gurugram, or Faridabad are higher than in Delhi.
Saurabh Bharadwaj said, "The severity conditions that are in Noida, Gurugram, or Faridabad are higher than in Delhi. It is not good to defame the people of Delhi."
"Delhi is the only state where a diesel generator is banned. In Noida and Gurgaon, most of the electricity comes from generators. Brick kilns are banned in Delhi. There are CNG and electric buses in Delhi. Did Haryana and UP have electric buses? We are doing everything... Punjab's number of stubble burnings is in front of everyone... It has decreased as compared to past years...Does the centre not have any responsibility? " said Bharadwaj.
Meanwhile, as air quality in several parts of Delhi-NCR plunged to the 'severe' category on Friday morning, people said they experienced breathing problems and irritation in the eye among others.
