China was once like India in terms of pollution. Just seven years ago, pollution levels in China were 90 percent higher than the standards. Every year lakhs of people used to become Kaal. China took planned steps for this and today the air quality of its cities has improved to a great extent. India’s steps so far have not proved to be effective. Here is a look:
Air pollution in chinese cities
In 2013, China’s cities topped the world’s most polluted cities. China was criticized worldwide due to the mist-covered cities of China, especially Beijing. Masked photographs of the people of Beijing were published worldwide.
The Chinese government enacted a National Air Quality Action Plan in 2013 and was able to control pollution to a great extent. According to the report of Greenpeace Air Visual, today 22 of the world’s most polluted cities are in India. In Delhi and its adjoining cities, the air quality index has been between 450 and 900 for the last few days.
Beijing’s effective plan
The country’s capital, Beijing, was the most polluted city. China paid the most attention to it. The factories established here and around it were locked. Production in steel and aluminum factories was reduced. In the year 2014, millions of polluting vehicles were removed from the road. All the forest or green areas around the construction line were completely banned by declaring the Red Line area.
Greater emphasis on renewable energy
China is currently trying to increase its dependence on renewable energy instead of coal and reduce pollution. China has also built the world’s highest air purifier. In 2014 the Indian government used to say that Delhi has less pollution than Beijing. US Embassy officials also believed that based on their data, the summer and monsoon winds in India are cleaner than in Beijing. Only in winter the air quality deteriorates or is similar to that of Beijing, but in five years the situation has changed. Today, Beijing is set to exit the list of the 200 polluted cities of the world.
Priyanka Gandhi reminded of the London Smog
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi has suggested to make a law, amidst the furore over pollution situation in Delhi. Reminding him of the London Smog, he said that there was a terrible smog in 1952 in which 12 thousand people lost their lives. Millions of people fell ill. After such a huge tragedy, legislation for clean air passed in London. His gesture was to take similar stringent measures to clear the air from the government. Let us know that Delhi Government has implemented Odd-Even from today, which has got some effect.
Priyanka Gandhi told the need to work unitedly for this, avoiding politics completely. A major hearing took place in the Supreme Court on Monday about the rising air pollution in the country’s capital. In this, the Supreme Court made strict remarks that all the concerned state governments have failed to fulfill their responsibilities and action should be taken against the people concerned on negligence.
Meanwhile, the National Green Tribuna, taking cognizance of air pollution in Delhi-NCR, has been appointed as the Chief Secretary of Delhi, Chairman of Delhi Pollution Control Control Board (Chairman, Delhi Pollution Control Committee). , Has summoned the Joint Secretary, Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change along with the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB).
Let us know that the situation in Delhi-NCR is getting worse due to air pollution. On Monday also the air quality level in Delhi was around 700, while in Noida, Greater Noida, Gurugram, Faridabad, it was also around 500. Although it remained between 300-400 by evening, doctors are advising people to stay away from Delhi-NCR. Doctors say that people from other states should stay away from Delhi right now, because the current situation here is very bad.
