What did the court say about air pollution?
In fact, the central government told the Supreme Court that stubble burning is not a major cause of pollution in Delhi and the eastern states, as it only contributes 10 percent to pollution. On this, the Supreme Court cited transportation, industries and the traffic system as the main cause of air pollution pollution.
Along with this, the court has asked the central and state government if they can stop vehicles in addition to stopping industries. The Supreme Court has also sought information on power plants that can be stopped. The court has given the central and state governments until tomorrow night to present their responses.
The Supreme Court ordered the central government to call an emergency meeting to stop construction works and unnecessary transportation services for tomorrow. The court has ordered the chief secretaries of Punjab, UP, Haryana to attend the emergency meeting tomorrow. With this, the Center and the state have been asked to consider implementing work from home for employees in Delhi-NCR.
The Supreme Court further rebuked the Center and the Delhi government, saying that a meeting the way an emergency meeting on pollution was held cannot be expected. It is unfortunate that we have to set the agenda for them (for the formed committees).
