As Delhiites continue to breathe ‘poor’ quality air and layers of smog are observed in the Capital, the Yamuna river sees a consistent layer of toxic froth floating over it. Local residents admit to having breathing difficulties.
It is a well-known fact that the air quality of Delhi is not the best for its people to be breathing and living in. But the citizens residing in the capital of India have only continued to breathe in the same poor quality air. Even on November 4, 2020, the Central Pollution Control Board noted low numbers on the pollution scale in Delhi. Continuous Ambient Air Quality Monitoring Station(CAAQMS) recorded a significantly thick layer of smog present in the ITO area of Delhi.

On November 4, 2020, even the quality index stayed at the ‘poor’ category in ITO, Delhi. “We are facing a lot of trouble,” a local resident admitted. She added that all the other locals who go for their morning walk every day have been facing similar issues. They have been feeling suffocated while walking. She added that wearing a face mask due to the pandemic while working out is anyways tough and the deteriorating air quality is only worsening matters.
Several campaigns have been started to tackle pollution-related issues in the country, such as the ‘Red Light On, Gaadi Off’ campaign. Referring to the ‘odd-even’ scheme for vehicles that were issued by Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, another resident spoke about how it is a very good measure to combat the major air pollution issue that the capital of India faces. As Delhiites continue to breathe poor air quality, there are other pre-existing issues that the city is battling such as the rising level of water pollution in the Yamuna river. The water quality has continued to remain poor with visible toxic froth appearing to be floating above its surface.
