“Union Environment Minister Prakash Javdekar on Monday blamed the erstwhile UPA government for not doing much to improve the national capital’s air quality, which started deteriorating in 2007. “It’s not that the pollution has risen suddenly as Delhi’s air quality had been worsening since 2007. The previous government did little to improve things,” Javdekar said here. “However, we have taken a lot of measures in the last one year,” he said while listing achievements of the environment, forest and climate change ministry in the past one year.”Construction of the crucial ring road bypass that will prevent unwanted traffic into Delhi has begun and within the next two years, vehicles that are not destined for Delhi will not enter the city. Delhi Traffic Police too is working out ways to restrict the entry of overloaded trucks into the capital.” IANS. Read it on delhiair.org.
