The meeting had been called by Parliament's Standing Committee on Urban Development. However, the meeting had to be cancelled as only 4 MPs attended: Jagdambika Pal, Hussain Masoodi, CR Patil and Sanjay Singh.
This obviously pissed off people, especially when they saw East Delhi's MP, Gautam Gambhir commentating at the India-Bangladesh match in Indore.

Such a shame. People have to wake up to who they chose and start giving their life importance themselves. Warna they will keep chosing ppl who will keep running and eat jalebi while they suffer #gautamgambhir #DelhiPollution— Hitesh (@imhiteshchadha) November 15, 2019

While MP Delhi #GautamGambhir commentates and enjoys Indore street food, he conveniently decides to skip the Parliamentary Standing Committee Meeting of Urban Development. All this, when a severe air pollution crisis looms large over #Delhi . #DelhiChokes #DelhiAirPollution pic.twitter.com/anXMQpgOyv— Amiti Pande (@Amiti14) November 15, 2019

This the seriousness of BJP for solving pollution issues in Delhi. Their MCD commissioners and other officials didn't turn up for the paliament commitee meeting. Another member of the committee & BJP MP Gautam Gambhir was seen busy eating jalebi in Indore#ShameOnGautamGambhir https://t.co/h4W5rw5Iny pic.twitter.com/322vqYz5ix— satya pramanik (@satyas_pramanik) November 15, 2019
The city has been choking for a while now. Schools have been shut and the AQI levels have constantly been recorded at severe levels.
