Just odd-even won't work — AAPology

Arvind Kejriwal-PTI

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said neither that the odd-even auto rationing system nor the 15-day Clean Air Campaign was a permanent solution to curb air pollution in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR).

The leaders rolled out a mobile application at the launch of the campaign, which will continue till February 23.

"Like we implemented the odd-even scheme for 15 days".

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday opined that "piecemeal" efforts to bring down levels of air pollution in Delhi are not a solution.

"We kick off from Delhi, as it is the most widely discussed and, of course, the one with real problems", the minister said. The two ministers also launched a "clean air campaign" app. During the period there was less traffic and less pollution in the air.

Odd-even not a permanent solution, says Arvind Kejriwal.

What Buzz Williams said after Virginia Tech's epic upset at Virginia
Four straight Ty Jerome points tied the game with 12 seconds, and neither the Hokies or the Cavaliers could sink a game-winner. Jerome's desperation shot at the buzzer found nothing but backboard, and the celebration was on for Buzz Williams' team.

The Centre had earlier played down the impact of the Delhi government's odd-even rationing scheme on air pollution, saying a single factor or action can not substantially reduce pollution levels in the national capital. Vardhan, while flagging off 70 joint teams of officials of union environment ministry, Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Delhi Government, Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC), municipal corporations and NDMC, said the "Clean Air" campaign was not a symbolic effort and that it will be panned out across the country.

"Pollution is not a subject of the environment department, it just handles the symptoms".

"Besides, we are mulling procuring global machines that accurately tell us what is leading to high pollution on a particular day, be it dust or fire".

He also said that a "strong message has to go down that pollution is a serious economic and health issue and is linked to our national image' too".

Kejriwal pitched for a "round-the-year study" on pollution levels in Delhi and said pollution was dynamic in nature and reasons contributing to it changed everyday.

"Efforts to reduce pollution levels will not be restricted to these two weeks only, but taken throughout the year on a continuous basis", Harsh Vardhan told reporters. He added that the campaign will be stretched to the entire year if it's found to be effective. People must realise their green social responsibility. Our cabinet can also sit with them and come up with a source wise plan if they decide to work together.
