On the eve of World Environment Day, Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung planted 250 saplings in Delhi. He also urged Delhiites to promote plantation drives in their neighbourhoods which will help curb pollution.
As per a new study conducted by the World Health Organisation (WHO), the air in the national capital is laden with dangerous small particles of pollution, leapfrogging Beijing - the city which was once considered one of the most polluted.
Delhi might see a sudden rise in its pollution levels in the coming days, thanks to the difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures which has reduced, the System of Air Quality Forecasting and Research said in a statement.
