If you are not living under a rock then you must be well aware of the ghastly air pollution that has spread across the national capital. The AQI has reached emergency levels and is severely affecting people's health in and around Delhi NCR.
So while the city's AQI is literally a national emergency at the moment, the government has still not taken any measures to reduce the effects of this catastrophic condition. In fact, the government gives ZERO shit about this crisis.
#UPDATE Parliamentary Standing Committee of Urban Development meeting has been postponed as 3 commissioners of MCD, Vice-Chairman of DDA, Secretary/Joint Secretary of Environment did not attend meeting. The Committee has taken serious note against the officers. https://t.co/RgpeXnboRT— ANI (@ANI) November 15, 2019
Now since the elected officials are doing absolutely nothing about it, the aam janta had to take matters in their own hands, yet again. A group created a Facebook event called 'Stay at Home Delhi - 18.11.2019' and has invited everyone to stay at home and not go to offices and schools as part of their peaceful protest.
This event is asking people to act in solidarity and demand immediate action and results so that us Delhiites can feel safe again.
Where: At your homes
Date: 18th November 2019
Time : 12:00 AM -11:30 PM
This is not a protest to stay at home just to chill, but a protest to take our health seriously. Join the event here.
