Excoriating the Centre for being ‘unresponsive’ and paying no heed to the issue of rising air pollution in Delhi, Environment Minister Gopal Rai on Saturday alleged that Union Minister, Bhupender Yadav is “not responding to his letters written twice” over the exigent situation of air pollution in the national capital.

Rai has stated that citizens ought to appeal to the environment ministry through social media to take imperative action on the emergency issue.Speaking to ANI, Rai said, “I wrote a letter to Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav twice over the issue of stubble burning, but did not get any response yet. I don’t know why the Centre is not responding as this is an emergency situation.”

“Under Anti-dust campaign, we have taken actions at 450 sites. We are also spraying bio decomposer to control the stubble burning in Delhi. The Delhi govt ran an anti-dust campaign & inspected 2,500 sites. We’ve begun the ‘Red Light On, Gaadi Off’ campaign for vehicle pollution; 550 people deployed to restrict bio-mass burning. Bio-decomposer is given to stop stubble burning” added Rai.The minister also said that people should minimize the use of private vehicles and increase using public transport. “I appeal to the people to use the private vehicles when it is needed. Start using public transport more so that we can control the air pollution caused by vehicles,” he said.
