Lucknow: Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati on Tuesday expressed her concern over pollution in the state and urged the central government to take immediate action on it.
प्रदूषण देश की राजधानी दिल्ली की ही भयावह समस्या नहीं है बल्कि पूरा देश व खासकर यूपी जैसे विशाल जनसंख्या वाले प्रदेश के ज्यादातर शहर इस भयानक समस्या से पीड़ित हैं। इसके मूल कारणों को समझकर इसपर समुचित ध्यान देना अब बहुत ही जरूरी है। सरकार इसपर तुरन्त प्रभावी ध्यान दे तो बेहतर है।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) November 19, 2019
"Pollution is not just the problem of Delhi alone but the entire country and especially a populous state like UP. Many cities are suffering from this terrible problem. It is now very important to pay proper attention to it and understand the root causes of pollution. It is necessary that the government should focus on the causes of pollution and take immediate action," Mayawati said in a tweet.
In another tweet following this, she claimed that due to the negligence of government pollution has become a mass problem and people have to stage protests against it.
2. वैसे तो सरकारी लापरवाही आदि के कारण प्रदूषण व्यापक जनसमस्या का रूप ले चुका है तथा लोग इसके खिलाफ सड़कों पर उतरने को मजबूर हो रहे हैं। इसलिए प्रदूषण पर संसद में चर्चा के बाद इसपर ठोस नीति व कार्यक्रम बनाकर इसको सख्ती से लागू करने की जरूरत है जो जनहित का सबसे बड़ा एक काम होगा।— Mayawati (@Mayawati) November 19, 2019
"Due to the negligence of pollution has taken the form of a mass public problem and people are being forced to take to the streets against it. Therefore, after a discussion in Parliament on pollution, it needs to be implemented strictly by making a concrete policy and program on it, which will be the biggest work in the interest of the public," she said.
Delhi and its adjoining regions have been battling severe pollution levels in the last few days mainly due to stubble burning by farmers in Haryana and Punjab. Air quality deteriorates every winter owing to incidents of farm fires in the two states. (ANI)
