The global survey says that 12 of the top 15 most polluted cities are in India. Delhi is number 11 on the list. The volume of air pollution is 114 micrograms per cubic meter. The Gurugram of Haryana is at the top, then Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh in the second position.

Environmentalists have termed Delhi a 'gas chamber' as it has surpassed all past records in air pollution. They demanded the Modi government to take effective steps to prevent air pollution in Delhi and other states.

We can't breathe. The government has not taken any action against this pollution. This poisonous dust has now made a deadly situation. Children are unable to attend school due to high pollution. We want the Ministry of Environment to issue an emergency.

Not only air pollution, poisoning spread in the water of Jamuna river. Excessive chemical mixtures cause toxic foam in the river water. The river’s water is polluted and its original form has been changed.

Environment pollution has also made an impact on the country’s politics. Uttar Pradesh BJP leader Bineet Agarwal complained that poison gas was spread from neighboring China and Pakistan, so the poison in the air. China has called the BJP leader the Joker in response.
