The Chief Justice told Mehta: “Where is the effective mechanism to control the pollution of firecrackers, vehicles. Look at the level of pollution,” to which the latter said that both the central and state governments should work together to resolve the issue. Is doing.
The Chief Justice said: “We have nothing to do, governments need a vivid solution, how to control. Two to three days’ short-term plans are needed to control pollution.”
Mehta clarified that he is not saying that only farmers are responsible for the severe air pollution that has engulfed Delhi-NCR.
Justice Chandrachud pointed out that the Delhi government has opened schools and cited the observation of the AIIMS director that it is a triple whammy – pollution, covid and dengue.
