Re: [IAC#RG] Alarming pollution levels at R.K.Puram


We are pleased to report to our members that the Central Pollution Control Board has confirmed what IAC has been saying all along that Aam Aadmi Party's "Odd-Even" scheme did not cut pollution.

"Odd-even in Delhi had no impact, says Central Pollution Control Board"

Since yesterday the pollution in South Delhi was 7 times the prescribed limit, IAC has demanded that Secretary Environment GNCTD be charge-sheeted. Accordingly, the L-G has summoned the Secretary Environment today to LG House to explain these readings and CPCB findings.

It may be noted that the sensor data we are relying on is from  DPCC's most modern setup located at R.K.Puram using radio-active technology and is situated inside a Kendriya Vidyalaya school in midst of greenery and open spaces, so readings are much lower than actual levels faced in crowded streets and markets.

As a short term measure, IAC has demanded that igniting and bursting of firecrackers be banned during Diwali to drive home AAP sarkar's inability to control pollution in Delhi.

Dear Chief Minister

Please find attached the PDF file (printed from DPCC air monitoring website) showing that 10 um SPM pollution levels at 700 are 7 times the permissible limits of 100. The readings are for 19th Oct 2016.

Since it is the Aam Aadmi Party govt which is responsible for this alarming situation, kindly immediately initiate disciplinary action against the Chairperson DPCC and Member Secretary DPCC for their gross corruption and failure to control the air pollution despite having the adequate real-time instrumentation which is recording these alarming pollution levels.

As a short term measure I strongly urge you to BAN the bursting and igniting of all firecrackers during this Diwali and prosecute offenders vigorously so that people of Delhi properly understand the pollution demon which is killing them.
