"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.

"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.
