The pollution levels in Delhi continue to be a major cause of concern, and tackling it remains my top priority.
gopalraaj, when I reached out to you 3 weeks back asking for your suggestions and ideas on how we can beat pollution, I knew we could fight pollution together!
I believe great things are in our future when citizens and government build a roadmap together. Thank you for your overwhelming response to our public consultation for #FightingPollutionTogether.
I am happy to share that I have received over 300 petitions addressed to me by you and many other concerned citizens of Delhi, who have shared constructive suggestions and ideas on how to tackle pollution in this beloved city, which is our home.
Over the last 3 weeks, my team has been going through all your petitions, and taking your ideas up for further consideration. We are already working on organising a laser show to celebrate Diwali without crackers from 26-29 October at Connaught Place from 6 PM onwards, distributing high-quality N95 air masks and re-introducing the odd-even scheme to bring down vehicular pollution.
Many of you addressed the urgent need to increase and subsidise public transport facilities. I am happy to share that only yesterday I flagged off 100 new buses and over 4000 buses are under various stages of procurement. I am confident these buses will be added to Delhi’s public transport fleet over the next year.
I would like to assure you that some of the ideas you have put forth are already being implemented or will be rolled out in the near future.
gopalraaj, we are determined to build a cleaner and safer Delhi, and having your suggestions truly helps us do this, together.
Wishing you and your family a happy, safe and green Diwali.
Chief Minister, Delhi
