….The recent WHO study found 13 Indian cities among the 20 with the worst air quality in the world with Delhi being the world’s pollution capital.The “health and economic costs extracted by air pollution are mind-boggling. It’s estimated to cause 25% of stroke cases, 48% of heart disease cases and 17% of chronic OPD cases in Delhi….It’s imperative, therefore, that Delhi gets a grip on toxic levels of air pollution and other affected cities take its lead. Swacch Vatavaran must be made an integral part of Swacch Bharat because both have the same objective: toxic air cripples citizens’ health just as poor sanitation does.” Times of India.
