6 November 2022 (New Delhi):The pollution level is continuously increasing in Delhi and the NCR, due to which people living in Noida, including those in Delhi and the NCR, are now unable to breathe properly. Dr. Arun Kumar, Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Government of Uttar Pradesh, expressed concern about the increasing pollution by holding a press conference at Shakti Sadan Guest House, Sector-38, Noida, on Saturday. He said that the state government is making continuous efforts to check the increasing pollution.

Minister of State Dr. Arun Kumar says that continuous efforts are being made by the state government to stop the increasing pollution. In this regard, efforts are being made to improve the air quality by sprinkling water by Springkal. Arun Kumar, while blaming Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for increasing pollution, said that Arvind Kejriwal is responsible for increasing pollution. They have made false and hollow promises.

Parali is being burned continuously in Punjab. Due to this, the level of pollution is increasing continuously, and now the quality of the air is deteriorating. In such a situation, the air in the surrounding areas, including Delhi and the  NCR, has become very bad due to stubble burning. At the same time, the effort of the Uttar Pradesh government is to stop the increasing pollution. Due to this, stubble is not being burned in the areas of western Uttar Pradesh.

According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the Air Quality Index (AQI) was recorded at 366 in Ghaziabad, 321 in Noida, and 415 in Delhi on Saturday morning.

According to the CPCB, the AQI in Greater Noida was 349, Faridabad was 371, Gurugram was 372, Manesar was 348, Bhiwani was 404, Bulandshahr was 181, Hapur was 225, and Sonipat was 347.

Environmentalists say that unless it rains, there is no chance of a significant reduction in pollution levels.
