Pollution increased due to the change in wind direction.
Experts say that the pollution situation has worsened due to the change in wind direction. Smoke from burning stubble in neighboring states has come to Delhi from the direction of the wind. Because a layer of smog has covered the sky.
The situation may get even worse
The Delhi government has clearly said that stubble is not burning in Delhi, but stubble is burning in neighboring states and because of this pollution it is increasing in Delhi. Experts believe that the situation may get even worse, as the stubble is continually burned. Due to this, the level of contamination can increase even more. Today, the air in Delhi has been poisonous for many days. Water sprinkling is done in many places at the government level. Smog weapons have also been installed in some places using new technology in the capital, but still Delhi is not getting rid of the smog.
