New Delhi: In a unique way to draw attention towards rising air pollution in Delhi, Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi wore a mask today as he walked into Parliament on Monday.
Reflecting concerns about alarming air pollution in Delhi, the Congress MP tweeted,"Pollution in Delhi is intolerable today. Only way to walk to work is by wearing a mask.#righttobreathe (sic)."

Gaurav Gogoi, son of Assam CM Tarun Gogoi, is an MP from Assam's Kaliabor constituency.
Earlier, on Thursday, observing that the current air pollution levels in the national capital have reached "alarming" proportions and it was akin to "living in a gas chamber", the Delhi High Court had directed the Centre and Delhi government to present comprehensive action plans to combat it.
Also, Delhi's AAP government has come up with a odd-even vehicle number formula to curb the pollution; the move has triggered a debate.
