New Delhi: The Supreme Court has attacked the Central government on rising Delhi air pollution which has increased despite the government claims. The Court expressed dissatisfaction with the measures taken over the last few weeks. The AQI in Delhi remains constant at 300-350.

Chief Justice NV Ramana was at the bench during the hearing. He said, “We feel that nothing is happening and the pollution keeps increasing… only time is being wasted,” The court has warned of strict action, the court gave the center and Delhi Government 24 hours to act against the pollution.

The Delhi government was attacked over the reopening of the schools. The top court said that “three-year-olds and four-year-olds are going to schools but adults are working from home. We will appoint somebody to administer your government.” NV Ramana added.  The question of keeping it online was deferred by the court and provided an ultimatum of 24 hours.

Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta was also questioned by Chief Justice. The Bench asked, “When hearings on the issue started there was a certain AQI (Air Quality Index). As you are claiming, efforts have been made then why is pollution increasing? That is the simple question a layman will ask. why is pollution increasing?”

The Centre and State may take action in the next 24 hours to avoid the ‘task force’ by Supreme Court.
