Atishi – AAP leader:
Environment Committee summoned the 3 MCDs today regarding rising dust levels and air pollution in Delhi, and sought explanation as to why mechanical sweeping was not being done. Negligence of all 3 MCDs was shocking!
1. None of the MCDs even knew the total length of roads in their Corporation area they are meant to sweep mechanically
2. There is no mechanism for fines or penalties in case the contractor running the machine does not clean the prescribed area!
All 3 MCDs have been asked to submit an action plan for reducing dust pollution.
And Delhi Pollution Control Committee has been asked to take strict action against individual officers responsible for rising dust levels in Delhi
