Delhi air is continuously hazardous. Why shouldn't the departments/agencies carrying out the excavation work of service road of nearly one kilometer stretch from Kamal Vihar apartment to Air Force Naval apartment be penalized for gross violation of environmental norms?. They should be booked as they don't care about the environmental norms and premature deaths this pollution is responsible for. Dust accounts for about 30% pollution.
Delhi government has spent more than hundred crores of tax payers money on a flyover designed at Dabri crossing with no relief to the carriageway. It is just an example of the inefficiency of our government agencies /departments. The flyover was designed to ease traffic congestion and provide better connectivity but has failed to serve its purpose due to poor planning. At peak hours it remains choked for hours as the vehicles coming from Pankha road to Dwarka side has to pass through a narrow lane which is hardly around four meters wide and only one vehicle can pass through at a time due to the presence of building right in the middle of the carriageway. Due to high congestion of traffic people choose to take the wrong side and create the hurdles for the traffic coming from Dwarka side to Pankha road and also survive the risk of an accident.
Delhi has no option but to revive its lifeline “Yamuna”. Yamuna’s upstream water serves Delhi’s 70% fresh water requirement and downstream polluted water is being used for irrigation purposes which make agriculture produce highly contaminated. Though the Yamuna starts getting polluted even before it enters Delhi, but once it enters Delhi it turns into a poisonous drain. Before entering Delhi its pollution is caused by fertilizers and insecticides mixed with agriculture runoff, untreated sewage and industrial effluents. Once its water reaches Delhi, it is sucked out from the river to meet water requirement of estimated 18.6 million population of Delhi. What Delhi returns back to the river is highly polluted sewage and effluent through about 3 main drains and about 19 other drains.
