Delhi is choking and our ministers are suggesting people to listen to music and eat carrots

Delhi

On one hand, Delhi is witnessing its worst air pollution crisis of the year and people are struggling to breathe and on the other hand, we have ministers like Prakash Javadekar and Dr. Harsh Vardhan making absurd statements.

Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar tweeted on Sunday recommending people to start their day with music. Seriously? At a time when people are developing serious respiratory problems and Delhi is literally choking, our Environment Minister has this to say.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan suggested people to eat carrots in order to counter pollution-related health problems.

Their tweets, of course, didn’t go down well with Twitterati, with them slamming both the ministers for their casual approach towards such a serious problem.

After a Supreme Court mandated panel declared a public health emergency in the Delhi-NCR region, the Delhi government on Friday announced that all schools will be shut till November 5.

On Sunday, Delhi’s Air Quality Index (AQI) surged to 1,239, way over the 500-level that qualifies as “severe-plus.”
