As Rain Hits Delhi-NCR, Temporary Respite from Pollution Expected

No Breather for Delhi as Capital Continues to Choke With Air Quality Dipping to ‘Severe’ Category – News18

All schools in Delhi will remain closed till 5 November, following rise in pollution levels due to stubble burning.

Following days of pollution, marked by a thick layer of smog, people in Delhi-NCR got some respite as rains hit the region on Saturday, 2 November evening. The rains are expected to clear the air to some extent by washing away pollutants.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the pollution concern in the national capital.

“I am not writing this to brush my hands off Punjab’s responsibility in this state of affairs. We are to blame but so is rest of country, including Delhi and your govt,” Singh wrote adding that the national capital is reeling under misery as the governments pass the buck.

Singh also questioned the role of the Central government and said that their role has remained “dubious”.
