Delhi Smog : Social media campaign started to fight air pollution
The air quality in Delhi slightly improved from "hazardous" to "severe" category on Tuesday. On Tuesday, social media users trended the hashtag--#PledgeAgainstPollution--on Twitter, where people from all walks of life promised to work to help reduce pollution. It has been more than a week now since the city is reeling under a thick blanket of smog turning the entire national capital into a "gas chamber" to the consternation of the residents. While the rise in levels of PM2.5 and PM10 has been attributed to several factors including industrial pollution, vehicular pollution, unabated construction and burning of stubble in neighbouring Haryana and Punjab, one thing is clear if the residents of the national capital are not ready to fight their battle against pollution, then nobody can save them.
