New Delhi: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday urged people to unite on the issue of pollution in the NCR region and Uttar Pradesh, saying clean air is "our right and responsibility". She cited the example of London wherein 1952 thousands of people died due to pollution and the people took to the streets and brought a law for clean air there.
आज प्रदूषण के मुद्दे पर गम्भीरता से सोचने की जरुरत क्यों है? दिल्ली, नोयडा, गाजियाबाद, कानपुर, बनारस, लखनऊ समेत कई शहरों की हवा जहरीली बनी हुई है। इसी हवा में हमारे बच्चे स्कूल जाते हैं। इसी हवा में मजदूर और आम जन काम करने निकलते हैं। #LetsUniteAgainstPollution

"Why is there a need today to seriously think about the issue of pollution. The air is toxic in Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Kanpur, Banares, Lucknow and many other cities. In this very air, our children go to school and our labourers and common people go to work," she said in a tweet in Hindi using the hashtag "Lets Unite Against Pollution".
"In 1952 in London when a dangerous smog took the lives of 12,000 people. The city was clogged and lakhs of people fell sick. After such a big disaster, a law for clean air was brought," she said. "The way we do certain things to improve our lives, take life insurance and do workout. We should make one attempt against pollution too as clean air is our right as also our responsibility," she said on Twitter.
