Gross Violation Of Environmental Norms At Dwarka Sector 7 Service Road From Kamal Vihar Apartment To Air Force Naval Apartment.
Delhi air is continuously hazardous. Why shouldn't the departments/agencies carrying out the excavation work of service road of nearly 1 km 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.
On 23rd April/2017 about 1 km, long service lane of Sector-7 Dwarka was dug to lay a power cable(unconfirmed). The agency which carried out excavation have excavated earth and dumped it along the entire 1 km stretch. The excavated earth continued to remain uncovered in gross violation of environmental norms until the early morning of 2nd May/2017 despite our reporter having reported the matter to local police station and other authorities. Our emails remain unanswered till date. On 2nd May the excavated stretch has been topped up with the earth laying around but the service lane continues to be littered with broken pieces of road top and dust. Since 23rd April/2017 the service lane continues to be a source of tremendous pollution. We will continue to report the incident to authorities till appropriate action is taken to restore the service lane to proper condition. Dust arising out of excavated area is a point of concern. We are witnessing thick blanket of smog and the residents and passerby are inhaling this dust every day.
What Is Air Pollution's Impact On Health?
Even environmentalists are saying that Delhi is facing an emergency like situation. But the departments/agencies responsible for the excavation work are not following norms and we see gross violation every day. Delhi air continues to be the hazardous and last year in the month of November turned into the gas chamber. The government had to close down schools for 3 days and shut down the Badarpur power plant for 10 days. The impact of this dust would cause, respiratory distress with elderly and children the worst hit. These tiny dust particles that can be absorbed in lungs and blood tissues, and trigger respiratory and cardiac problems.
Wake Up Call For Delhiites!
We citizens should wake up, take responsibility and report these matters and force the departments /agencies to speed up their work and follow standards.
